Conservation Colorado Education Fund

A nonprofit organization

At CCEF, we believe that the future is worth the fight. Your support helps us fight for proactive policies that combat climate change, protect our public lands, keep Colorado's rivers flowing, and stand up for communities to ensure all Coloradans have equitable access to a healthy environment.


"Everything is at stake - our health, our climate, our future. It's now or never. Conservation Colorado is determined to fight for a better future for all of us. Please join us in this fight."

- Ning Mosberger-Tang, Conservation Colorado board member and donor

"Conservation Colorado is the state's most effective advocate for adding new public lands and for defending existing wilderness against threats, state-wide. If you cherish wilderness the way I do, please consider becoming a monthly donor as well."

-Glenn Randall, Photographer and Conservation Colorado monthly donor


Conservation Colorado Education Fund's mission is to protect Colorado's climate, air, land, water, and communities through organizing, advocacy, and education.

The Inflation Reduction Act is the most significant federal climate investment in history, and a huge victory for all of us. It makes the U.S. a climate leader on the world stage, and its bold investments in clean energy innovation will help us power our transportation, homes, and businesses in a way that is more affordable and better for our planet.

While the IRA gives us a path toward a livable climate future, it's up to states like Colorado to continue the work. Colorado has an outsized role to play as a fossil fuel-producing state with a population that is deeply impacted by climate change and ready for climate action.

Our state can, and should, demonstrate a successful, resilient model of climate and clean energy leadership that other states can follow.

Conservation Colorado Education Fund will do everything we can to make sure Colorado remains a leader on climate, conservation, and environmental justice. As the largest statewide environmental organization in Colorado, your support will help us continue our decades-long history of leadership by continuing to make our state a bright spot for clean energy progress.

Background Statement

Some of our top accomplishments, achieved in partnership with supporters like you, have included:

-Establishing Colorado as a national leader on climate policy, and the first oil and gas producing state other than California to have science-based greenhouse gas reduction targets in statute;

- Establishing permanent protections for close to 4 million acres of Colorado's iconic and invaluable public lands;

Generating a record-breaking 30,000 public comments to ensure that Colorado's state Water Plan included strong goals for conservation and protecting our rivers;

Graduating over 250 Promotorxs from our Protégete program to build a stronger, more equitable climate and environmental movement that prioritizes Latinx issues and elevates Latinx leadership.
