Are You Ready for Better Energy?

By investing in the Great Plains Institute, you help support our work throughout the energy system. Together, we can enable consumers to drive electric, power the workforce with more employment opportunities, reduce carbon emissions, shape policies, charge the electric grid with low-carbon energy, and foster new ideas. For the last 20 years, we’ve worked on energy solutions that strengthen our communities, grow the economy, and improve lives while reducing emissions. Join us today and support Better Energy!

Why You Should Give

By investing in GPI, you’re supporting an organization that drives better energy across the entire energy system. We partner with philanthropy to bring the right people and institutions together, often across sectors and party lines. Whether your passion is transportation, communities, efficiency, electricity, or carbon reduction, we make better energy a reality.

The Great Plains Institute is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

We can solve our energy challenges, but we can’t do it alone.

Our donors understand the importance of implementing an energy system that benefits the economy and the environment. Our shared passion for long-term impact has fueled our donors’ commitment to GPI’s work and allowed the organization to grow as one of the leading voices in shaping the future of energy locally, nationally, and globally.

At GPI, we are realists. We know that the energy challenges we face today are complex. Together with our partners and generous supporters, we can achieve better energy.
