Once again this year the Earth Institute is a beneficiary of Climate Ride, the national bike ride to raise charitable donations for and awareness about sustainability, active transportation, and environmental causes. Participants can select the Earth Institute as a grant recipient when riding in any 2014 Climate Ride event, and anyone can support one or more riders with a donation toward their personal fundraising goals for the event.
Climate Ride is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 to inspire and empower citizens to work toward a new energy future. Climate Ride events raise donations for a designated group of more than 100 organizations selected for their work on environment, conservation, clean energy, sustainability, climate education or active transportation advocacy. In addition to the Earth Institute, beneficiaries include 350.org, the National Parks Conservation Association, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, the Sierra Club, and The Nature Conservancy.
