BFF establishes a Made in Climate Change Initiative
The United Nations has declared a state of Code Red for the future of humanity! [9 Aug 2021, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) ]. Many of us accept that the adverse effects of human-induced climate change have indeed reached emergency proportions, and that it is imperative that we act personally and corporately in response.
The Blennerhassett Family Foundation has established a ‘home-grown’ Climate Change Initiative, encouraging carbon offset donations from individuals.
Using ‘carbon offset calculators’ available on the internet, you can determine a suitable amount to offset the impact of your plane trips, holiday cruises, use of private cars in the city or on long road trips, home heating, or any other activity that uses fossil fuels. Here is a link to one example: carbonfootprint. A tax-receiptable donation of the calculated amount, or any other amount of your choice, can be made to The Blennerhassett Family Foundation marked for the Climate Change Initiative.
As part of our annual granting activity, we will allocate the matching amount to qualified local organizations actively working to ameliorate climate change. While your donation builds our endowment fund for future grants, we will ensure that an equivalent amount is channelled now to a suitable agency.
