Hello GRID friends!

GRID Alternatives began with a simple idea: solar power should be available to all. Since 2001, GRID has worked side by side with low-income communities to reduce climate injustice and provide job training for the new green economy. We have a shared vision to continue this work at a time where the need is increasing. This need will only be met with support from people like you.  

If you’ve volunteered on an install or signed up for our newsletter, you are part of the clean energy transition and the GRID team. However, our impact grows when volunteers and supporters become donors. In the coming weeks, we will be emphasizing the importance of charitable gifts, which help us stay true to our shared values – people, planet, and employment.  

This holiday season we, the new Member & Donor Partnerships team, are asking you to share your generosity. Everyone has a special reason for giving – for some, GRID opened the door for a career in solar, and they want to pay it forward for another person. Some want to support climate justice, and believe in a clean energy future that includes and benefits everyone. Some give a little every month – no more than the cost of a cup of coffee – because they know that when a lot of people give what they can, it sparks something much greater.  It’s a new chapter in GRID’s story, and we are a new team to work with our community of supporters. With your help, we will continue to ignite the solar revolution.  

From our heartlight to yours, 

Dolores Garay and Lauren Morgan
