This project will save us $2,000, allowing us to allowing us to research creating a skills-based volunteering platform like Catchafire for climate adaptation for small and remote communities..

What We Need

  • Expert consultation regarding the Organization's current branding and desired branding objectives
  • Visual Branding guidelines that include specific colors, fonts, and graphic elements to build into communications, print and online mediums
  • High-resolution logo delivered electronically

How This Will Help

We are creating a new program to bring expertise on climate adaptation and heritage preservation directly to vulnerable communities and need your help to create a logo! The new program, Rise Up to Rising Tides, will work like Catchafire for communities - pairing skills-based volunteers with communities in need of climate adaptation At a time when Washington has turned its back on climate change, there has been an increase in both community need for assistance and desire to help. Our platform will connect communities like Shishmaref Alaska and Point Aux Chenes Louisiana with volunteer professionals looking to donate their skills.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a vision and mission which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have two dedicated staff persons and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

Over the past year, our Managing Director traveled across America as a National Geographic Explorer visiting the country’s most environmentally vulnerable communities The idea for Rising Tides came directly from 300 in-person interviews with local leaders to better understand how climate change is impacting America’s coastal communities.
