Why Investing in Solar for Nonprofits Matters

Start the conversation
1

Social Impact

Lowering a nonprofit’s energy costs means savings that generate a positive cash flow that’s redeployed to support the nonprofit’s mission. Solar savings instantly translate into the programs and services our communities need.

2

Environmental Impact

Invest in solar for nonprofits to reduce carbon dioxide by replacing fossil fuel consumption with clean renewable energy. Solar deployments made possible through SunForAll Solar Fund directly support the fight against climate change.

3

Economic Impact

Solar can save a nonprofit millions in energy costs over the lifetime of the system and reduce their dependence on traditional fundraising. Instead of making a donation to pay a nonprofit’s utility bill, help them eliminate the bill by investing with SunForAll Solar Fund.

The Power of Impact Investing with SunForAll Solar Fund

SunForAll Solar Fund is a unique nonprofit solar financing program created by CollectiveSun with lead investor BQuest Foundation and other impact investors. Funding solar installations can be challenging for nonprofits because they don’t have access to solar tax credits due to their tax-exempt status and rarely receive favorable terms for bank loans. SunForAll Solar Fund eliminates these obstacles by monetizing those tax credits and using an investment structure consisting of a Program Related Investment (PRI) that includes a grant plus low-interest loan to fund 100% of an installation cost.

A solar system funded by SunForAll Solar Fund provides an organization with clean energy and savings for 25+ years. This means that the nonprofit redirects limited resources from operating expenses to direct mission support while you create a solar endowment that supports the long term sustainability of their mission. The Fund provides you with a return of capital and a means for investing in renewable energy to address pressing social and environmental concerns.

Climate change is one of our world’s most immediate challenges and values-aligned investors are stepping up to address it. You can be part of the solution by creating greater access to solar for nonprofits. Invest with SunForAll Solar Fund to unleash the power of solar for good.

Why focus on solar?

Having access to solar energy reduces operating expenses for nonprofits which makes them more financially sustainable. Stronger nonprofits enhance our social fabric and strengthen our communities, helping them become more reliable and resilient.

Not to mention the incredible impact solar has on our environment!

What is solar endowment

SunForAll Solar Fund impact investors receive semi-annual principal and interest repayments. However, after the investments are fully repaid, the nonprofit continues to enjoy free and clean renewable energy for years to come, enabling them to better serve their community. It’s like a “solar endowment” that generates savings every year.
