Students for Carbon Dividends (S4CD) is a nominally right-leaning group formed in 2018 to advocate for center-left policies, most prominently a carbon tax. The group is particularly focused on persuading young conservatives and Republicans to support its global warming agenda.
S4CD’s board of directors includes Ted Halstead, a liberal political activist and prominent carbon tax supporter whose think tank, the Climate Leadership Council (CLC), also supports a carbon tax and dividend policy.  According to its 2018 IRS Form 990 filing, S4CD lobbied for “bipartisan climate action” in support of the so-called Baker-Shultz Carbon Dividends Plan created by CLC. 
In 2018, S4CD’s board of directors consisted of president Alexander Posner, an undergraduate student; board member Ted Halstead, president of the liberal Climate Leadership Council; and board member and vice president Kiera O’Brien, an undergraduate student. 
In 2018, S4CD reported total revenues of $150,100, all of which originated in grants from other, unnamed organizations. The group reported total expenditures of $42,252, all of which was paid as fees to independent contractors, and net assets of $107,848.
