Help Nonprofits Go Solar

There are roughly 1.5 million nonprofits in the United States that face major barriers to getting their solar projects financed.
You can change that.

How it works

You can help nonprofits across the country immediately save money on their electricity bills by going solar. Saving money means they can better serve their communities, while the remaining energy savings are reinvested into future solar projects. We call this the Solar Seed Fund – a one-of-a-kind, pay-it-forward revolving fund for solar for nonprofits.


Recoverable Grant Opportunity

RE-volv  works to provide solar energy access to those that are excluded from the benefits of the clean energy economy. RE-volv is currently raising $10 Million through Recoverable Grants  from impact investors through two Recoverable Grant options to scale our proven model of solar finance for community-serving nonprofit organizations across the United States.

Donor-advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to RE-volv directly from your DAF, as long as your DAF's sponsoring organization is participating.

We believe that everyone should have the ability to support and spread clean energy. So we created a new way for people to take action. It's a pretty simple idea. Through an innovative solar financing model, these nonprofits immediately save on their electricity costs. As these organizations pay us back, we reinvest the money into more solar projects in communities across the country. This creates a revolving fund for solar energy that continually perpetuates itself building more and more solar. It's a pay-it-forward model for solar energy. We call it the Solar Seed Fund.

About RE-volv

RE-volv is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to tackle climate change at the local level by empowering people to accelerate the adoption of clean energy in their communities. At RE-volv, we believe that everyone can participate in helping to build the clean energy economy and everyone can share in its benefits. We provide solar energy financing to nonprofits serving disadvantaged communities across the country, while raising awareness about the benefits of solar, and training the next generation of clean energy leaders in the process.

Since 2013, RE-volv has been solarizing nonprofits in low-to-moderate-income communities, BIPOC communities, and in parts of the country where solar is less common, less economical, and where through community engagement, we hope to build momentum for stronger clean energy policy.

Recoverable Grant

An innovative financial vehicle that allows RE-volv to receive a grant from foundations and Donor Advised Funds, use the funds to build solar projects for deserving nonprofits, and pay back the endowment with interest over time. Grantors can then continue to regrant those funds to organizations of their choice.
