The ERC has just received three special year-end gifts totaling $24,000 from the Bohrer Family Foundation, the Roy A Hunt Foundation and a private donor. These generous gifts are all in support of a new groundbreaking local energy initiative that is sure to pay dividends for years to come.
These donors would now like to challenge the community to match their gifts so that our community can carve out a cleaner energy future. The ERC needs to raise $48,000 to undertake a special 2011 Energy Summit initiative. With these generous donations, we're already halfway to our $48,000 goal!
But we still need your help to meet this challenge!

Take the challenge and help match these generous gifts! With your help, a cleaner energy future is within reach!
