Founding Affiliates

We welcome companies to be a part of this coalition as Affiliates. Affiliates are large and small companies like consulting firms, law firms, and other private companies who are interested in supporting a regional coalition for a healthy and resilient Bay Area. Affiliates pay annual dues, are listed on the website, and are invited to sponsor and attend the annual Summit.

This is a great way of marketing your business to the nonprofits, public agencies, and Indigenous Tribes that are members of the coalition. And it is a great way to be a part of the regional community of organizations working on climate resiliency and social equity.

Affiliate dues can be found here.
