How to Apply for a Remy’s Good Day Fund Grant for Solar Initiatives
All applications must be submitted in writing to the Fund’s Executive Director, and must include a budget. We are a small organization, and therefore our approach is hands-on and highly personal. We can help format your grant proposal if necessary to speed it through the process. In that way, we can make the best use of both your time and ours.
We highly recommend that the applicant talk to or meet with us before submission. To start this process, or for any questions, first contact:
Maureen Vosburgh, Executive Director
(505) 467-8459 office
(520) 241-7537 mobile
Goals for Grants
Impact economically-challenged communities on Tribal lands or in rural villages in New Mexico through cost-saving energy solutions with a solar focus.
Educate and train youth, the unemployed, and the underemployed in alternative energy options in preparation for employment, job creation, micro-enterprise, and entrepreneurship, all with a solar focus.
Assist community building by introducing new solar-focused technologies.
Your proposal must be compatible with the Fund’s mission, which is as follows: Remy’s Good Day Fund promotes collaboration for sustainability and the well-being of future generations.
All projects must:
Demonstrate a community benefit
Include community participation
Contain an educational component
Be respectful of the aesthetic and cultural landscape
Show clear financial needs, and the Fund must not be the only contributor
Be led by a Project Manager with demonstrated skills to execute the work
Show how they will provide results-oriented updates.
There is no schedule for application. We grant funds as the need arises and as long as funds exist within the calendar year.
Once the grant application is finalized and approved by the Executive Director, it is forwarded to the President for final approval. We will respond with approval or disapproval in a timely fashion, and hope to respond within two-weeks of final proposal submission.
