Philanthropy Pairs up with Fresh Energy

On top of UNICEF our philanthropy committee is taking on Fresh Energy as a client this year and we couldn’t be more excited!

Fresh Energy is a St. Paul based non-profit organization. Fresh Energy advocates for legislation, increased awareness, and action for sustainable energy, transportation, and sustainable issues. Right now, Fresh Energy is in the process of planning a series of movie screenings in January, March, and May at the Riverview Theater. The three movies included in the series are ‘Dirty Business About Coal,’ ‘Gasland,’ and ‘A Sea Change,’ all of which relate to current environmental issues. 

Philanthropy members taking on Fresh Energy as a client are currently looking into on and off-campus environmental organizations to reach out to in the hopes of gaining more awareness and interest in Fresh Energy’s movie series. We are also in the process of finding potential sponsors to help provide food and beverages at each of the movie screenings.  On top of this, Fresh Energy would like us to work on finding a sponsor who would be willing to provide airfare and lodging for the directors of the films being shown. Also, if Fresh Energy is interested, members of the committee would be willing to write copy and press releases for the movie screenings.

Overall, the philanthropy committee wants to create a buzz surrounding the three movie screenings and about Fresh Energy as an organization. We’re passionate about them and are excited to be working with them! We hope to bring as much success to the film festival as we possibly can.  If you have any ideas you’d like to share with us about Fresh Energy don’t hesitate!
