Heads up! SolaRISE, a renewable energy crowdfunding service powered by the Groundwork Center, has shifted gears to address the urgent needs of local food pantries during the COVID-19 crisis. Please consider giving to the Local Food Relief Fund

SolaRISE is the platform to help your nonprofit organization to go renewable! When you create a renewable energy project on our site and share it with your supporters, you’re on your way to harnessing renewable energy to reduce your environmental impact. Here’s how it works:
