Energy is a major expense for food pantries, homeless shelters, children’s homes and other nonprofits in our communities that provide a hand up for people in need. Raising funds and installing solar on their rooftops through our Green Watts for Good program is a way everyone can help them save on their electricity bills each month for a very long time, paying back your donations many times over, as solar panels are made to last 25 or more years.
For our Giving Tuesday project, Nebraskans for Solar is partnering with Heartland Hope Mission, a nonprofit that provides basic needs and job opportunities to approximately 45,000 people throughout the year, helping them to become self-sufficient. Your contributions will be used to install a solar photovoltaic system on their building at 2021 U Street on or before Earth Day, April 22, 2020.
Three Ways You Can Help
Make a tax-deductible contribution on our SHARE Omaha Page. Our goal is to raise $10,000. Nebraskans for Solar will match contributions up to a total of $10,000.
