The Corvallis Carbon Offset Fund (CCOF) was conceived by the Corvallis Interfaith Climate Justice Committee (ICJC) as a result of discussions with 350 Corvallis and a shared passion to take action on the growing climate crisis.  It was realized that while existing carbon offsets unburden the climate of greenhouse gases, there were several disadvantages regarding

  • accountability for pricing
  • observation of remote activities
  • opportunity for education and engagement
  • dollars sent out of the local area
  • benefits returned to the local area
  • inclusion of carbon offsets as progress toward the city and state carbon emission goals.

ICJC constructed an offset fund consisting of local organizations to address these concerns.  It followed the framework of the Imagine Corvallis 2040 Vision Statement while moving forward on the goals of the Corvallis Climate Action Plan.

ICJC serves as the initial Steering Committee for the CCOF.  Although its membership draws from 10 local faith-based communities, it designed the CCOF for the whole community. 

ICJC is a partner organization of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition and the Corvallis Climate Action Alliance.  It has liaison with 350 Corvallis and the Eugene Interfaith Earthkeepers.

Brian C. Lee is the principal visionary and architect of the CCOF, and leads the ICJC.
