Coal Plant Retirement Grant

Austin PSR has been given an incredible opportunity to expand our work in one of our key areas of strength and expertise – advocating for the retirement of dirty coal-fired electrical generation plants. Austin PSR received this grant in partnership with National PSR from the Energy Foundation to work on coal plant retirement statewide over the next year. This grant will extend the work we’ve done for the past 10 years to engage and collaborate with the public health community and with health professionals who treat patients everyday who are suffering from air borne contaminants.  We will add a crucial public health voice to move Texas away from using coal and into cleaner and more sustainable power generation methods.

But, We Need Your Support!
 
The Energy Foundation has generously offered to match every dollar we raise up to $10,000.

Simply stated - Every dollar you donate allows us to do twice as much work!
 
If you want to help end coal’s stranglehold over Texas’ power generation, decrease carbon emissions, and directly impact Texas’ air quality, please help us reach our goal with your charitable donation.

Suggested levels of giving:
$1,000  - Hero
$500  - Advocate
$100 - Supporter

The following graphic illustrates the status of our fundrasing efforts as of: 7/14/2013.


 
Of course, any amount helps, and all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Although we passed our deadline we will continue to collect funds throughout the project to support our efforts. Please consinder becoming a donor.

Please send you checks to 604 Corral Lane, Austin TX 78745 or feel free to donate online on Austin PSR’s website.
