CCF has two new chapters working in the Lakes region and the Southeast region of the United States!
Two of CCF’s long-time supporters decided to make the leap and create regional chapters. They gathered together other cheetah friends to help plan events that promote outreach and fundraising. Forming a chapter for CCF might seem like a big task, and it can be a lot of work to get started, but CCF staff can help by linking together CCF supporters who have expressed interest in becoming more involved. These newest groups are utilizing online communications and virtual meetings to build statewide participation. This tactic opens up a wider pool of participants and more opportunities for collaboration. If you would like to be involved in helping them with their efforts please email firstname.lastname@example.org. More on their efforts below:

CCF Indiana had been working to build a base of support across Indiana. Their focus is education and they visit schools, universities, and civic institutions to build awareness for CCF and the cheetah. They are looking for new members and new places to spread the word.
