Non-Profit Grants

As a local company invested in our community, we offer grants for photovoltaic system installations. Each year, we awarded full or cost sharing grants to non-profit organizations (registered as a 501(c)(3)). Although the cost sharing grants have higher probability for success, we encourage full grant candidates with a strong commitment to community service to apply.

Criteria for Geo grants application:

  1. The recipient must be a non-profit organization registered as a 501(c)(3).
  2. The recipient must serve the Southern Arizona community.
  3. The cost sharing grants must be approved by the recipient's board members.

Please send the following the listed documents and all supporting documentation by electronic copy to

  1. On-site visit questionnaire.
  2. Verification of tax exempt status under 501(c)(3).
  3. Previous year IRS form 990.
  4. A cover letter stating the organizations' community involvement, installation time frame and how the photovoltaic system will benefit them.
  5. Operating budget for the current year.
  6. Copy of last 12 months electric bill.
  7. Contributor names, statements and amounts for cost sharing grants.

The selection process will typically take 6-8 weeks after the application deadline. We will contact you for a site visit if your organization is selected as finalists. There is no guarantee a finalist will be awarded the grant.
