Opportunities for donor funding are listed below. Project sponsorship is tax deductible. TECRE is a 501(c)(3).
TECRE projects provide experiential learning for students while benefiting hurricane disaster victims. Recipients of TECRE projects with annual salaries below $10,000/year are prioritized. Students participate in nano- and micro-grid design and assist with deployment of donation funded solar systems. To ensure NEC compliance, TECRE works with a licensed master electrician. TECRE can also engage in contractual work where profits are reinvested into TECRE mission activities.
