SolarFest Depends on Your Generosity!

SolarFest has remained strong for more than 25 years because of the people who participate; the artists, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers. We celebrate our silver anniversary because of everyone who contributed their time, enthusiasm and money to support our common goals.

This year we have a very special opportunity — thanks to the incredibly generous 1-to-1 matching fund of $25,000 established by Dr. Mel Tyree and Charleen Miles. They will double every dollar you contribute to SolarFest, allowing us to raise up to $50,000 to get things growing right at our beautiful new home.

Please help us reach this unprecedented challenge.
Consider making a matched and tax deductible contribution to SolarFest today.

Thanks to Our Generous Donors

We are extremely grateful to all those who have contributed to SolarFest’s success. We are kept strong by the individuals and organizations committed to our mission to connect people, the arts, ideas and technology, while fostering partnerships and activism to create a vibrant present and a sustainable future.

We reached the goal of our first Matching Grant Challenge, where a generous long-time supporter provided a $6,000 match to the funds raised from individual donations and our Climate Ride team, and would like to recognize the generosity of these friends and benefactors for their commitment to our mission of energy education through the arts.
