I am sharing this from Aly Martori at “ioby” — a new web platform that makes it easy to raise donations for specific environmental projects. This might be appealing for some of your congregational initiatives.
And don’t forget that New Generation Energy is a similar site that is available specifically to “crowd-fund” energy upgrades to your facilities.

If you have a great idea for environmental change in your neighborhood but aren’t sure how to start, the answer is now in your backyard!
ioby is an environmental nonprofit that uses crowd-funding to help bring your ideas to life! After a successful New York City pilot funded nearly 200 community led park, garden, biking, hiking, composting and chicken projects, ioby (stands for “in our backyards”) is expanding nationally. ioby connects people to environmental projects in their own neighborhoods. In fact, most ioby micro-donors give an average of $35, live within two miles of the project they’re supporting and regularly volunteer with the project.
Whether you want to raise $300 or $30,000 for your project, ioby.org can help you have a successful fundraising campaign.
