This Rivian Raffle is Nearing the Finish Line!

The Rivian electric truck remains almost impossible to find. Shoppers from coast to coast are growing frustrated with long delivery waits. But one creative nonprofit has solved the problem—for at least one lucky driver.

The group is giving away a Rivian R1T Launch Edition as part of their annual raffle to fight climate change. You get the Rivian keys immediately. No waiting time. Not in the market for a Rivian? You could choose a custom-built Tesla instead.


The Rivian has been in the news lately as the first electric truck to hit the road. They challenge Tesla in the electric car market and recreate what electric cars are capable of. Named Motor Trends 2022 Truck of the Year, the Rivian R1T is getting rave reviews for its speed, power and adventure-ready design. It launches to 60 mph in three seconds, has 835 horsepower and 908 pound-feet of torque, and a range of 314 miles. This truck is ready for any adventure.

But only about 5000 R1Ts have been delivered with over 71,000 pre-orders. If you order one today, you might not see it until 2024! This is where the Chesapeake Climate Action Network Action Fund (CCAN Action Fund) comes into play. You now have a chance to get the keys to one this September, all while supporting a nonprofit fighting climate change.


The winner will have the choice of the Rivian or their preferred Tesla model with all the bells and whistles up to a price of $135,990 instead. Imagine a Model S Plaid with maximum features for speed, luxury, long-range battery and the latest EV technology inside and out.

It is the fourth year in a row that the CCAN Action Fund has raffled off a Tesla. But this is the first year they’ve added a Rivian truck to the mix. As an added bonus, they pay all state and federal taxes for you, bringing the total prize package to over $190,000!

The CCAN Action Fund went out and bought a launch edition of the Rivian R1T. The truck is safely stored on a farm in Virginia in perfect condition. No other Rivan lottery or contest out there puts you behind the wheel instantly.


Tickets are limited, so the odds of winning a Rivian or Tesla are truly amazing. All proceeds from the raffle support the CCAN Action Fund team as they advocate for clean energy and transportation.

The best part: the draw is almost here! Your $200 donation could have you driving a new electric car by the end of the summer! And everyone can win. Last year’s raffle winner was a nurse from a small town in Kansas. When they called Lonnie to tell him he won, he was actually out administering vaccines to fight Covid-19. Needless to say, his day was made.

You could be this year’s lucky winner! Your raffle not only gives you the chance to win, it makes you a champion of climate action. CCAN Action Fund has been called “the best regional climate organization in the world” by legendary author and climate activist Bill McKibben. They champion clean energy policies—including the promotion of electric vehicles—at the state and regional levels and on Capitol Hill.

With gas prices at record highs, the sweepstakes and their pure transportation work couldn’t be more timely. The winner of the drawing can say goodbye to $5 per gallon gas forever. And every ticket helps them advocate for legislation in Washington—now under debate—to offer serious tax credits for electric car purchases while building charging stations across the country. This summer may be our last chance to really fight global warming at the federal level for a very long time. Your ticket powers that work.

The draw is almost over, with the draw on September 9th. They only sell 5,500 tickets – and right now less than 3,000 have been sold. So your chances of winning are incredibly good with one ticket purchase. Even better if you buy multiple tickets.


CCAN Action Fund’s goal, as a climate advocacy group, is to get you and everyone else behind the wheel of an electric vehicle. Cars, trucks and other forms of transportation account for nearly 30 percent of the United States’ climate pollution. Rivian and Tesla vehicles are made for the planet. Whether you’re going on an outdoor adventure or cruising the city streets, when you’re behind the wheel of an electric vehicle, you’re helping to preserve the natural world for generations to come (and avoid high gas prices!).

It’s never been clearer – the time to start driving a Rivian or Tesla is NOW. The CCAN Action Fund is uniquely positioned to help lead our nation toward a low-carbon economy, but we can’t do it without you. Make this your year to join the Tesla or Rivian community of drivers and leave a lasting impact on climate change. Buy a ticket today and enjoy the payout for many years (and generations) to come!


The draw closes at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, September 9, 2022, and the winner will be announced at 9:15 PM ET same day. You must be 18 years of age and a US resident to purchase a raffle ticket. Click HERE for all the legal details.
