Sungevity Has Raised $2 Million For Its Nonprofit Partners To Date

The residential and commercial solar energy solutions firm Sungevity has raised more than $2 million for its nonprofit partners to date, according to a recent press release from the US solar company.

Under the partner initiative, the solar firm provides funding to organizations that take part, proportional to the number of nonprofit members or supporters who go solar through the program. Since its launch back in 2011, the partner list has grown to more than 100 nonprofits — including the Sierra Club, The University of California at Berkeley,, and many others, of course.

The program was apparently first originally launched in order to support Westside Waldorf School.

“I want to thank all the organizations who participate in for partnering with us,” stated Andrew Birch, the CEO of Sungevity. “Their partnership is a great example of the rooftop revolution in action — how organizations and individuals are leveraging solar power as a solution to a broad range of issues — and we’re proud to have reached this new milestone.”

“Sungevity’s non-profit partnership program clearly demonstrates how the for-profit and nonprofit business sectors can work hand-in-hand to tangibly advance each other’s causes and have a lasting effect on our society,” stated Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club. “We applaud Sungevity for developing and growing this innovative cause marketing initiative, and we are very pleased to share in its success.”

More information on the program, on the general nature and background of the company, can be found at the program website.
