Civic Engagement and Environmental Impact Grants

First Solar manufactures solar modules with an advanced semiconductor technology and provides comprehensive photovoltaic system solutions. By continually driving down manufacturing costs, First Solar is delivering an economically viable alternative to fossil fuel generation today. From raw material sourcing through end-of-life collection and recycling, First Solar is focused on creating cost-effective, renewable energy solutions that protect and enhance the environment.

The First Solar Corporate Charitable Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life in communities around the world. Emphasis is placed on programs that support the First Solar Corporate giving values which include: focusing on “green” education initiatives, access to clean energy and water in underserved areas, and furthering the development of innovative and sustainable technologies. Priority will be given to organizations that make a significant impact in communities that share our giving values.

As the Fund seeks to support projects and services making a meaningful impact, grant requests must be for projects or services that cost or exceed $10,000 (USD). Requests under $10,000 should be directed to the First Solar local office nearest the grant seeker.

In principle, requests should be in English. However, applicants may request translation assistance.

Grants will only be awarded to a) nonprofit, charitable organizations that are designated as having tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Service code or b) organizations capable of demonstrating the ability to fulfil the charitable purpose of a grant award. The Fund may limit the number of requests accepted by any one requestor at its discretion.
