As we confront the climate crisis, there is an urgent need to provide policymakers and the public with reliable information and a path forward to a bright future. We invite you to partner with us and help expand the use of clean, affordable solar energy.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we rely on public contributions to support our work and deliver impact. Your business or organization can join us as a supporting partner to inform policy and expand solar markets.

The Solar Foundation is the only independent nonprofit organization that provides high-quality data and best practices on the public benefits of solar energy, including the benefits to health, the economy and jobs, and public safety. We use targeted outreach to inform decision makers as they develop transformative clean energy policies.

Our annual Solar Jobs Census and other flagship research provides indispensable data to support policy change at all levels of government. We are also on the ground helping hundreds of local governments build capacity to develop and expand energy markets in ways that benefit everyone. And we use wide-ranging communications to increase public support for renewable technologies and climate solutions.

Our ability to continue to perform this important work depends on the support of companies and organizations such as yours. A contribution to The Solar Foundation in any amount will help ensure we are able to produce the work that opens new and expands existing clean energy markets. We are in this together. Help us help you!

The Solar Foundation has a consolidated sponsorship and benefit structure through which contributors can support many of our important efforts — and receive recognition across several of these high-profile products and programs. View our Sponsorship Prospectus to learn about sponsorship levels, or contact Philip Haddix, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships, at

In addition to organizational sponsorships, we welcome and depend on individual contributions.
