Apex Clean Energy is pleased to support community groups, educators, and changemakers in the Franklin and Cerro Gordo County community. One small way we can do this is by giving back through the Indigo Wind Community Grant program.
If you represent a group or organization that meets one of our four key funding categories (see below), we encourage you to complete the application below and apply today. While grant dollars are limited, our goal is to fund projects and programs which build healthy communities, create economic opportunity, encourage environmental sustainability, or promote education. Recipients will be selected quarterly.
B) Economic Development: Programs that spur economic growth. Apex Clean Energy supports and encourages the entrepreneurial spirit. It is part of our mission to serve as a catalyst for economic opportunity and development within the communities where we operate.
C) Environmental Sustainability: Programs that possess a strong link to environmental revitalization, sustainability, or education thereof, empower residents to be stewards of the environment, and/or encourage partnerships to address environmental concerns and sustainability. Participating organizations must have a credible record of success in environmental performance.
D) Promoting Education: Programs that support educational institutions, the advancement of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and training programs for careers in the wind industry. This may include curriculum development, literacy, school readiness, and other initiatives that help students grow into young leaders. Vocational training institutions that help build a skilled workforce are also included and encouraged to apply.

Apex is cautious to ensure that its community grant program is not used to create undue influence on local decision-makers, or even the appearance of such an impropriety. Grant applications that Apex determines might create a perception of impropriety will not be awarded. No preferential treatment is expected or desired in exchange for grant awards.
