Coalition Sustainability: Funding
Activities to Increase Financial Sustainability
•
•
•
•
Seek nominal participant fees for workshops and events
Seek industry grants and event sponsorships for workshops and future
interns/staff
Seek grant opportunities and partnering opportunities with other agencies in
exchange for services and events
Implement a membership dues structure
If Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition had more funding, :
•
•
•
•
Hire a paid coordinator
Hire paid support staff
Provide increased management and technician training
Implement improved outreach equipment such as a loaner computer, flat
panel display, create marketing videos, acquire communications software
(go to meeting, webcasting)
Clean Cities / 24
Coordinator and Support Volunteer Time
Commitments
Time Commitments
• Current Staffing
• Coordinator currently works 10-12 hours per week (in-kind)
• Co-coordinator currently works 10-12 hours per week (in-kind)
• Interns and contract staff work 15 - 20 hours/week (paid)
• Future Staffing
– Over the past 18 months, the work effort necessary to manage the
Coalition has increased significantly due to the increasing requirements
and accountability required by the DOE
– Within 3 years, the work necessary to operate the Coalition as currently
projected could easily increase to 60 hours per week
• The Challenge
– In order to function at the level that we are projecting, we will
need to identify funding streams or find a way to secure in-kind
staff time from more organizations.
Clean Cities / 25
Coordinator Succession Plan
• The Vice Chair currently fills in for the Chair in his absence and will
continue to do so
• The Coalition by-laws provide for a process to fill vacant officer and
director positions
• The coalition maintains hard copy and electronic files of all important
coalition documents and correspondence in a central location
(Secretary/Treasurer maintains files).
• Duplicate electronic files are maintained by the Chair and the ViceChair and all files are regularly backed up to storage devices
• Maintain a back-up electronic files of important documents
Clean Cities / 26
Coordinator Training
• Coordinator & Co-coordinator have both attended “Coordinator 101”
• Coordinator and Co-coordinator have both taken several Clean
Cities University Online Learning System including:
– Clean Cities' e-Tools
– Coordinator Basics
– Laws and Regulations
– Vehicle and Fuel Technologies
• Coordinator or co-coordinator participate in monthly Western Region
Clean Cities Coordinators calls

Coalition Challenges/Barriers to
Success
Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition’s biggest challenges:
•
•
•
Running our organization with all-volunteer management and student interns
Budget constraints…economy (i.e. businesses and government agencies find
it difficult to pay dues)
Lack of secure funding sources
Here are the steps we’re taking to address those challenges:
•
•
Seeking further partnerships to leverage available funding opportunities
Consider Pursuit of the “Coalition Mentoring Program”
Here’s how DOE, its labs and contractors can help us succeed:
•
•
•
•
Tools such as calculators (i.e. VICE model, Fleet Analytics, etc.), putting dollar
value on carbon offsets,
Online surveys
Emissions Analysis
Physically Locate the Western Regional Manager in the Western Region
Clean Cities / 28
In Summary
• Sacramento Clean Cities has provided significant
support in petroleum-reduction efforts within our region
through grants and enhanced education. Re-designation
would allow for these efforts to continue and would allow
for our future plans to be initiated.
