It’s official — Sungevity.org is on-line and ready to help your favorite non-profit or school raise money by getting their community to go solar. We donate $1000 to schools and non-profits for every customer they send our way. The Center for Biological Diversity, our first non-profit partner, has already raised $46,000!
In addition to the Center for Biological Diversity, some of our early partners include The Wilderness Society, Rainforest Action Network and Green America. On January 25th, we welcomed our first school, Westside Waldorf, and kicked off our partnership with a star-studded event at the school, featuring actor Helen Hunt, whose Sungevity home solar system produces 9,000 kW of solar electricity a year. Also in attendance was Ed Begley, Jr., host of Planet Green’s Living with Ed and a longtime advocate for solar power. Westside Waldorf hopes to raise enough money through Sungevity.org to help finance a solar system for the school.
Do you know of a school that wants to earn $1000 per customer instead of $1 per cupcake? Or a group that wouldn’t mind getting a no-questions-asked chunk of change without the hassle of a grant proposal and annual grant reporting requirements? Send them on over to Sungevity.org.
