Paying It Forward
I have donated to the Ottawa Sustainability Fund as a way of sharing the money I saved from conservation and efficiency in my life. If you would like to help green projects in Ottawa, you can donate on their website as well at osfund.ca! You can commit a percentage of your monthly energy savings with a monthly donation.
Another innovative fund in Ottawa is Justchange. Members pools resources by pledging $50 individually bimonthly and then grant $1000 to whatever initiative they choose.
Also, I found an organization in the States that is very similar to Greening With Gratitude called RE-volv. You can donate to a seed fund which builds and leases solar systems to community centres. The payments from the leases are reinvested into building more solar systems.
I am also looking for projects to work with, ideally one that could get someone started with their own savings. If you are interested, give me a shout at [email protected]
