Activities in support of purpose
Heart and Solar identifies various charitable organizations across Canada which will benefit from the use of renewable solar energy systems to reduce regular energy costs. Heart and Solar will then raise funds to purchase and construct solar energy systems for these charitable organizations. Heart and Solar is uniquely positioned to capitalize on Calgary's extensive energy network of knowledge and capital. Heart and Solar will employ a myriad of fundraising techniques from informal networking to traditional advertising and annual fundraising events.
Heart and Solar will use the fundraising proceeds to hire Canadian solar installation companies to construct solar energy systems at no cost to the beneficiary organizations. Heart and Solar's Board of Directors will consult with potential beneficiaries and select successful beneficiaries according to need and capacity.
