Earth Day Hero
                                                    Image with Jaguar

Jaguars need room to roam. Their territory covers expansive areas—which means that deforestation and other human interference hits them hard. From illegal logging to road development to retaliatory killings, these wide-ranging cats face extreme threat levels throughout Central and South America.

But we can change that if we work together to Keep the World Wild. With Earth Day coming up, there’s no better time to take a stand for the wildlife that keep our planet healthy and biodiverse. Today we’re honoring jaguars with a special one-day match: Make your gift now and see your donation doubled up to $5,000. Jaguars need you to take action today. There’s no time to lose.

EACH YEAR IN AMERICA, 3 MILLION CHILDREN EXPERIENCE HOMELESSNESS. COVID-19 HAS MADE THE PROBLEM WORSE.

Preventing a family from becoming homeless is the most effective way to address the crisis of family homelessness. This year, low-income families need our help more than ever. Together, we can prevent children from experiencing the trauma of homelessness and keep them with their families, safe at home.

Join us on April 21st to share stories, spread the word about Family Promise, and raise funds for our important work

CRA is thrilled to announce we will be offering grants for the printing and distribution of recycling outreach materials in rural and small communities!  Our goal is to help reduce contamination and increase participation in these community recycling programs!

The purpose of this grant is to fund the purchase and distribution of education and outreach materials for these communities in order to help educate citizens on what can be recycled in their respective communities and to combat recycling contamination.  Applicants should carefully read the entire application before completing.
 
Application Due Date:

Applications will be accepted until 5:00 pm on Friday, May 14, 2021.

Eligible Entities:
  • Rural local governments, defined as counties, municipalities, councils of governments and solid waste authorities in North and South Carolina.
