From 2014 to 2016, Grants to Green (G2G) helped nonprofit organizations become more sustainable by granting $1 million to fund energy improvement development projects. The three-year program ended after awarding grants to 32 organizations, while leveraging $1,478,660 in match dollars from grantees, and saving nonprofits an estimated $264,000 in annual utility costs.
