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.

Rebuilding Together is one of the country’s leading community revitalization organizations. Rebuilding Together’s local affiliates, along with nearly 100,000 volunteers, provide critical repair and renovation services for nearly 10,000 rebuild projects each year in neighborhoods facing economic challenges and communities affected by natural disasters.

The National Energy Education Development Project provides students and teachers with inquiry-based learning resources to promote education on energy use, energy efficiency, and new energy technologies. Through curriculum materials, hands-on activity kits, and educator workshops, the NEED Project is working to empower the clean energy workforce and leadership of tomorrow.

The Solar Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to advancing the use of solar technologies and the development of a strong and diverse solar industry workforce. The Solar Foundation supports educational outreach, job training, and objective research aimed at increasing access to affordable solar energy and improving the lives of people around the world.
