We invite you to make a tax-deductible donation to CRCS to further our development and implementation of regenerative solutions, by sending us a check or clicking the Donate Now button to use PayPal or a credit card.

Send checks to: CRCS, 8 Revere Rd., Basking Ridge, NJ 07920, and indicate whether you want it dedicated to one of our specific initiatives (see below).

Our 501c3 nonprofit, the Center for Regenerative Community Solutions (CRCS), has focused for the past three years on developing the New Jersey PACE Program (NJPACE).

NJPACE arranges private sector financing for energy efficiency, renewable energy and resiliency in businesses and nonprofits. These investments would not be feasible without the game-changing mechanism that NJPACE provides. Beyond the significant benefits to property owners, our society benefits from reduced carbon pollution, hardened infrastructure, jobs and economic development.

Because of the delay in getting amended legislation, however, we have broadened our scope in three ways:

  • We have developed an alternative to PACE called DREAM financing — for Deed-restricted Resiliency and Energy Affordability Measures — and are seeking investors, property owners, and contractors to create demonstration projects. See www.NewJerseyPACE.org.
  • Partnering with Paul Hawken’s Project Drawdown, and the Center for Climate Protection, we have looking to advance Dr. Delton Chen’s Global Climate Currency policy proposal to international financial institutions and to central banks. See www.global4c.org.
  • We are developing an organization structure for Ecovillage New Jersey (see www.ecovillagenj.org)
  • We are partnering with the Ecovillagers Alliance in evolving an Ecovillage Real Estate Investment Cooperative to support the redevelopment of our communities along sustainable ecological, social, and economic lines. See www.ecovillagers.org.

We need your financial support to cover our costs until we officially launch and become self-funding in 2018. Your contribution will be used for startup costs such as community outreach and education, software development, contractor training, legal work, and other expenses.

This initiative represents the culmination of many years of work and “lessons learned.” As one of our Board members writes, “it combines vision, innovation, practicality, experience and networking urgency, passion–and now needs the financial support from the community we’ve been building all these years.”

Please give generously to CRCS. Share this opportunity with friends and family. Be a leader. Take action to make NJ more sustainable.
