Community Cloud Forest Conservation alleviates poverty and protects forests through education, reforestation, community development, leadership scholarships, and ecological improvements to agriculture. CCFC believes that holistic human / community development through education and capacity building is the key to conservation and peace building in Guatemala's central highlands. Education, especially for young women, is key to the healthy and sustainable development of this region.
CCFC is proud to be a research partner with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, eBird, the University of Mary Washington, the Fulbright Scholar Program, and the American Bird Conservancy. CCFC agroecology outreach in 2015 was made possible by the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. CCFC's reforestation efforts are partly fueled by Chicagolands Bird Conservation Network. CCFC is also pleased to announce its new collaboration with Dining For Women and their support of CCFC's WALC and WALC in the Village programs for 2015 and 2016. The Conococheague Audubon supports CCFC's Kids and Birds Program.
Community Cloud Forest Conservation is a non-governmental, not-for-profit, conservation and human development organization, incorporated in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and registered with the Internal Revenue Service of the United States as a 501(c)3 tax exempt entity, governed by a volunteer board of directors. CCFC works locally and without overhead costs. 100% of all donations are used in Guatemala for conservation and community / human development purposes. Although CCFC enjoys many strategic partnerships, the majority of CCFC's income comes from individual contributions. All earmarked donations are used as designated.
CCFC is building an environmental education center for local Q'eqchi' Maya children, youth and adults. Now's the time to make your contribution toward the building fund.
