Matching funds sought for solar project at Transitions

Donor-advised fund advisors at Innovia Foundation are seeking matching funds from the community to help fund a solar electric system for a homeless women’s shelter in downtown Spokane. The solar system will be installed by Transitional Programs for Women on its Women’s Hearth facility at 920 W. Second Avenue.

Much of the funding has already been obtained, but $20,000 is still needed to completely fund the project. Contributions of up to $10,000 will be matched by the donors, who asked to remain anonymous.

The project has several benefits:

  • The building is located at a good site for efficient solar generation
  • The cost is partly offset by state and federal incentives
  • The installation will significantly reduce electrical usage and carbon emissions from the building
  • The solar panels will cut operating costs for the nonprofit Women’s Hearth facility
  • The center provides safe shelter and programs for homeless women

All contributions should be paid directly to Transitional Programs for Women mentioning this matching gift program. For more information, please contact PJ Watters at 509-624-2606.
