ABC Trust provides Efficiency Forward grants
Nonprofits to benefit from energy efficiency upgrades

The Alabama Business Charitable (ABC) Trust Fund has awarded Efficiency Forward grants totaling more than $76,000 to eight organizations across the state:

  • Turkey Creek Nature Preserve, Pinson

  • Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama, Birmingham

  • Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch, Camp Hill

  • Atmore Area YMCA

  • Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation

  • Second Chance Foundation, Montgomery

  • Selma Art Guild

  • Friends of Ivan K. Hill Park, Inc., Winfield

The Efficiency Forward program provides grants to nonprofits to make energy efficiency improvements to their facilities. The improvements help provide cost savings that nonprofits can pass on in services to their clients.

“These eight organizations truly make a difference in their communities,” said Myla Calhoun, ABC Trust executive director. “We are thrilled to provide funds that will help them better serve their clients and make an even greater impact.”

Since its start in 2007, the program has provided more than $1 million in support through 132 grants.  

The ABC Trust Fund was created in 1992 by Alabama Power to partner with community action agencies to help low-income families pay monthly energy bills. It also supports programs that promote energy efficiency for nonprofits and low-income individuals and families.
