We believe that the wellbeing of families and individuals starts at home. But what it takes to make a safe and healthy home goes far beyond the walls of a house. It’s found in the wellness of our communities and personal networks, the vitality of our local businesses, and the quality of the education we provide our children.

At the Salal Foundation, we make charitable donations to support organizations that are making a difference in the places where our members live, work, and learn. From assisting homeowners in making vital repairs and improving the livability of their homes, to advancing the solar power industry and creating local economic opportunities, we’re dedicated to improving lives and promoting prosperity to help our communities thrive.

People can experience housing insecurity in many ways, from struggling to pay their rent to having to move often or stay with relatives. Housing instability often has the biggest impact on children and seniors. We work with organizations around the country that focus on making essential safety and health-related home repairs, helping people in need stay in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities.

Taking action to fight climate change has never been more important to our communities. We partner with innovative organizations working to make solar energy accessible to more people in more communities, while at the same time ensuring we have the well-trained solar industry workforce needed to tackle the big challenge of significantly reducing CO₂ emissions, today and in the future.
