In the pursuit of a more sustainable and inclusive future, partnerships between organizations and Tribal communities are proving to be a catalyst for profound change. The U.S. Bank Foundation has supported GRID Alternatives’ low-income solar and workforce development programs in California and Colorado since 2010, and in 2018, it expanded its national relationship with GRID Alternatives to support the Tribal Program.

Today, BMO announced a $3 million donation in support of GRID Alternative’s (GRID) low-to-no cost solar energy systems and storage, clean mobility, and job training programs for underserved and unserved families throughout California, Colorado, and Native communities in the western United States. GRID, the nation’s leading nonprofit solar installer, partners with organizations to build community-powered solutions to enable access to renewable energy.
On July 24th, 2023, GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles (GRID GLA), Habitat for Humanity, Accenture, Bank of America, and Southern California Edison, came together to install no-cost solar systems for three families who moved into the recently constructed Millennium Homes, built by Habitat for Humanity. This event celebrated our shared dedication to make lasting change in our communities.
Wells Fargo made its first philanthropic donation to support GRID’s work in California. In 2018, Wells Fargo provided a $5 million philanthropic grant over three years to support GRID’s Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund. Most recently in 2022, GRID Alternatives received a $500,000 philanthropic grant from Wells Fargo for its Welcome Home Initiative, an enterprise-wide employee engagement initiative that aims to create a deeper sense of community pride and collective purpose in support of Wells Fargo’s commitment to affordable and sustainable housing.

As part of this effort, Wells Fargo employees have the opportunity to participate in over 10 GRID Alternatives solar installation projects across the country.
