Give the Gift of Light

Make a tax-deductible gift to Renew’s Gift of Light campaign

In off-grid rural areas of Timor-Leste, solar energy is often the only electrical option to facilitate the provision of essential services. Electricity provides light to study for exams or to deliver a baby at night, power to recharge phones and operate computers and printers, and energy for record keeping and printing educational materials.

For 16 years, Renew has worked with communities in Timor-Leste to provide clean, renewable lighting and electricity to people living in remote rural villages. We have helped install solar lighting and power to more than 2,100 homes and over 100 community centres, orphanages, schools and hospitals. We have also helped train more than 180 village-based solar technicians who can then use their skills to provide value to their families and communities.

Over the years, Renew has been able to do much of this work thanks to our Gift of Light campaign.  These funds enable us to leverage additional support from foundations and businesses.  Every year around the holidays, we ask for donations to our project in the name of a friend or family member. These gifts go towards improving the quality of life for thousands of people living in Timor-Leste.

You can download an e-card on each donation page if you are giving as a gift.  All donations of $2 or more to Renew’s Renewable Energy Development Fund are tax-deductible.

Thank you for your generous support.

All donations of $2 or more are fully tax-deductible. A receipt will be issued for tax purposes.
