Mission: The Business Council on Climate Change (BC3) is a public-private partnership between local government and the business community that works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in San Francisco through collaboration and direct action.
Approach: Full Circle Fund helped BC3 produce an actionable strategy to help address “range anxiety”, a barrier to consumer adoption of electric vehicles, by increasing the availability of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in commercial buildings in downtown San Francisco.
Members armed BC3 with the contacts, strategy, and outreach materials (including EV success stories) to reach building managers, tenants, and owners in over 100 commercial buildings in downtown San Francisco.
Members created tools and resources that helped BC3 to fundraise for their EV program. Member support also opened the door to relevant potential funding opportunities.
Full Circle Fund saved BC3 at least $10,000 of staff member time and $3,000 on design for print and online materials.
Full Circle Fund goes beyond traditional grant-making. BC3 received much needed financial and in-kind support for an important initiative, and developed strategic relationships with a diverse and accomplished team of Bay Area professionals.” -Katherine Michonski, Director, Business Council on Climate Change, Full Circle Fund Grant Partner
