SEEDS Asks For Your Support

October 30, 2018

SEEDS is beginning our 2nd decade!

SEEDS celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2018. We wish to thank all of you who have helped achieve this milestone. Whether you attended one of our free sustainability workshops, had a free home energy assessment or solar assessment, and/or donated time and funds to our mission, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education & Development Support) would not be here without our growing number of supporters.

SEEDS has done so much in our first decade to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainable living, and is proud of the larger role we now play in our region’s operations: serving on Wayne Tomorrow; and participating in a PA statewide initiative Finding PA’s Solar Future.

Every November, we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to keep us going. We know you receive many requests, so we are very grateful that many of our supporters make SEEDS a priority. This is the only fundraising letter we mail each year, and this is how we raise over 60% of our general operating budget. This is a great way YOU can help make our region more sustainable.

This year, seven donors have offered to match all donations received by December 31st up to $7,250!  This is our largest donor match yet, and we need your help to reach this goal!

Once again, we simply could not do this without you! Thank you for supporting a sustainable future, and being a part of the growing SEEDS group!

And from all of us at SEEDS, we wish you and your family a safe and joyous holiday season!

You may be familiar with some of our accomplishments:

But you may not know:

SEEDS is actively engaged in community partnerships including the Pike Wayne Conservation Partnership, comprised of the many environmental organizations that serve both Counties, and the Quarterly Quality Council, created by Wayne County Human Services to bring public and private sectors together to create a healthier community for Wayne County’s most vulnerable residents. SEEDS also serves on Wayne Tomorrow, an initiative with the Wayne County Commissioners, and business/community leaders to improve the quality of life and economic opportunities.  Through our involvement with these organizations, SEEDS has been able to better align our efforts with the needs of the community. And that’s just what we will continue to do with your support.
