- Announcing new partners for Back Your Stack and putting the call out for more to join our efforts.
- An amazing Sustain Summit—look out for a full report soon!
- Bringing our remote team together face to face to set the roadmap for the coming period.
News for Fiscal Hosts
Fiscal Hosts are the entities behind the scenes who make it possible for Collectives to receive and spend money.
We've recently introduced new paid plans for fiscal hosts. (Note: fees for Collectives are not changing, only fees for hosts).
The new fees will enable us to create great new features for hosts, like redesigning the dashboard. We'd love feedback from host admins! Dashboard Redesign >

- With CO2 over 416ppm, the time to act is now. Join the #FridaysForFuture movement.

- UK climate Collectives can now get printing expenses reimbursed thanks to All For Climate UK.
