Review for NEW ENGLAND GRASSROOTS ENVIRONMENT FUND INC, Montpelier, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a fan of NEGEF for many years - their niche in helping small and informal grassroots groups get organized and be effective on issues they identify themselves is unique and resonates with my deep value for community self determination.

However it was only recently that I became a beneficiary. As a new resident in a town not organized on energy issues but with plenty of community, I with a few others have been trying to crack the nut on building momentum on energy efficiency. We had some good ideas but when Ginny called up regarding our grant application she gave us plenty more. Her and NEGEF's deep roots and networks in local communities here makes their guidance practical and energizing. We're still trying to hit cruising altitude but I feel stronger knowing they've got our back.
