Our work is supported by charitable donations of time, money and materials from more than 300 American electric cooperatives as well as private organizations and individuals. We thank the hundreds of electric co-op directors, linemen, engineers, managers and other employees who have volunteered to bring first-time access to electricity, and train staff at local utilities be sustainable in their own communities.
