Fundraising for building and site improvements

HPIC has been the recipient of several generous grants and donations. We have two raingardens, a cistern and a beautiful courtyard thanks to Rainwise, Sustainable Seattle, King County Green Grants and DePave (plus a lot of hardworking volunteers). Now, thanks to Northwest SEED, Solarize Washington, Artisan Electric and Puget Sound Solar, we are preparing the HPIC roof for installation of a donated 4.4 kw solar photovoltaic system.

The Courtyard installation required us to replace broken parts of the sidewalk – this partial replacement cost us just over $9000. The partial roof replacement, in preparation for the solar panels, will cost over $6700. These improvements, to support the tremendous site and building improvements that have been donated  to us, are necessary and significant. We will continue to improve the building and site through grants and donations – please help support your neighborhood club by becoming a sponsor of Highland Park Uncorked, making a donation to HPIC via the donate button on our front page or sending us a check (HPIC, 1116 SW Holden, Seattle, WA 98106).

Part of the new sidewalk replacement – wish we could do it all…

Preparing for solar panels – and for the rest of the roof when we save up the money.
