Campaign Story

The Vision:

Through a combination of grants, matches, loans, and donations, Maple City Health Care Center will purchase solar panels to help meet our power needs.

The Opportunity:

A group of friends of Maple City Health Care Center has generously offered financing for roughly two thirds of the cost of solar panels for our sites (Phases One and Two).

Financial Benefits:

  • First 7 – 10 years, energy cost savings will equal the initial installation cost
  • Next 10 – 20 years, energy cost savings of $18,000 to $28,000 per year
  • Like an endowment, the initial investment will help sustain healthcare for vulnerable people in Goshen for many years

Social and Environmental Benefits:

  • Provide a positive example for other institutions and households to follow
  • Decrease the particulate emissions from coal and natural gas – emissions which cause lung cancer, asthma, and heart disease
  • Bolster Maple City’s image and attract new donors and grantors
  • Generate local economic activity and jobs
  • Help reduce climate change

We invite you to help with a donation. Any amount helps, but here are some suggestions:

  • Make a $20 donation (200 people donating $20 = $4,000)
  • Make a $100 donation (100 people donating $100 = $10,000)
  • Make a $1,000 donation (16 people donating $1,000 = $16,000)
                      • Total = $30,000

Help us improve community health and affordable access to quality care for the next generation of our neighbors in Goshen
