Members are individuals or businesses whose generous support of $1,000 or more helps CAC to grow, respond to new opportunities, enhance our capabilities and invest in innovation. Members are invited to informative, exciting events and briefings, and receive frequent email updates on CAC’s work.

The Climate Adaptation Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your contribution is tax-deductible.

Contributions by CAC Members and others fund the development of the Climate Adaptation Center, and its ongoing efforts to build a curated collection of state of the art climate-related science, focused on Florida’s climate issues. Your contributions help us bring renowned experts to Sarasota to meet with community leaders in academia, business and government to help develop local solutions to adapt to the changing climate and mitigate its effects.
