Marshall Fire Resilient Rebuild Assistance Fund

Dear Friends--
As we work to assist our fellow community members whose homes were destroyed in the devastating Marshall Fire, it's important that we help them build back better -- by rebuilding homes that are more energy efficient, fire-resistant and climate-friendly. A group of us have been working to identify and raise resources to help them achieve that goal and recently created the Marshall Fire Resilient Rebuild Assistance Fund at the Community Foundation to specifically collect contributions to support a sustainable and resilient rebuild. Please consider a donation and help spread the word!

Contributions will provide support such as expanded rebates, incentives, and other assistance to help homeowners rebuild sustainably (e.g., better insulation, solar-powered, all-electric, etc.). These funds will augment the other resources we've identified to date, including generous rebates from Xcel, a community solar garden subscription offer from SunShare, discounts from heat pump manufacturers and other resources.
Our response to climate change-fueled tragedies, like the Marshall Fire, must provide immediate support for affected residents AND make our communities more resilient to future climate disasters while reducing the carbon emissions that fuel them.

Thanks for any help you're able to give. Click here to donate!
Best,

Elise Jones
