Climate Change & Clean Energy Amplifier Fund

This fund supports projects that promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, and greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions. 

Focus Area Details

  • $30,000 maximum project budget.

  • Sustainable CT will match crowdfunded dollars raised.  For example, for a $30,000 project, $15,000 is raised through crowdfunding, matched by $15,000 from Sustainable CT.

  • The spirit of the Community Match Fund is to support and amplify grassroots efforts that strive to transform their community, neighborhood, and town for the good of all. We have found that crowdfunding is the best way to ensure that projects are responding to their community and have community buy-in for their projects. We welcome donations at all levels, however any donation that exceeds 35% of your crowdfunding goal will only be matched by Sustainable CT up to the 35% threshold.

Example: If your crowdfunding goal is $15,000 and you receive a donation of $6,000 (40% of goal), Sustainable CT will only match up to $5,250 (35% of goal) of the $6,000 donation.
