YOU CAN COUNTERACT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S EPA AND DOE BUDGET CUTS
Be a part of the next breakthrough in clean energy
Here's what we're up against: clean energy science is facing major cuts for the 2018 federal budget. Less money means less research, fewer breakthroughs, and fewer jobs. However, we already know:
(1) It is bad for our planet. We are polluting our atmosphere and changing our climate by burning coal and oil. Climate change means more frequent and severe droughts, floods, storms, and fires; which can impact the lives of millions - and potentially billions - every year. We need a quick transition to 100% clean energy sources, and this transition is accelerated by scientific breakthroughs.
(2) It is bad for our economy. The clean energy sector is creating hundreds of thousands of jobs - solar and wind jobs alone are growing at a rate 12x faster than the U.S. economy. Clean energy science has a documented return on investment of 24:1.
Alt-E Fund takes on the global climate challenge by funding brilliant scientists to move quickly from their innovative energy ideas to proof-of-concept and beyond. Alt-E Fund is the first and only non-governmental funding source for clean energy science. We use donations from people like you to directly fund the best clean energy scientists and research projects in the country, and to ensure those projects get turned into results companies and citizens can use to reduce—even eliminate—their carbon footprint and reverse the terrible consequences of climate change. (Learn more about the types of projects we fund here.) With your help, we can create a clean and sustainable future.
