For more than two decades, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation has partnered with visionaries throughout the state of Utah to improve the lives of all its citizens.

Since its founding in 1982, the Foundation has made more than $300 million in grants ranging from modest assistance of $1,000 or less to multimillion- dollar investments in universities and health-care organizations. The Foundation addresses needs large and small alike -- always seeking to make a personal difference in the daily lives of Utahns, and to ensure a strong economic base for their future.

Funding from the Lawrence T. and Janet T. Dee Foundation supported the Drive Electric Northern Utah Program.

The founders established the Lawrence T. and Janet T. Dee Foundation in 1971 for the purpose of benefiting Ogden and the surrounding area through charitable endeavors. Their son, Thomas D. Dee II (known as Tommy), was a founding director of the Foundation and continued their vision, serving as a chair until his death in 2009. The family wished to give back to a community which had supported them during their lifetimes.

WSU only transparent                                                        

Weber State University (WSU) is an institution with over 25,000 students that is committed to sustainability in both the realms of education and practice. It became an American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment signatory in 2007 which led to the creation of the school’s Energy and Sustainability Office and the campus' Climate Action Plan that details steps for becoming carbon neutral by 2050. Since 2007, through energy efficiency and conservation, WSU has cut its electricity consumption by over 29 percent, and its carbon emissions by over 30 percent. The campus is on the path to electrify its heating and cooling systems and is growing its own fleet of electric vehicles on campus. The use of electricity better enables use of renewable energy over the long term, particularly solar and geothermal.

In 2015 WSU established the Sustainability Practices and Research Center or SPARC. The center aims to further and facilitate WSU’s aims of sustainability education, research, and very importantly, practice, both on and off campus. It serves as a sustainability hub for the campus and wider community and is, together with the Energy and Sustainability Office, pleased to be a partner in the Drive Electric Northern Utah program.

Since its founding in 1888, Utah State University has evolved from a small-town college tucked away in the Northern Utah mountains to a thriving research university with over 28,000 students state-wide. The university became a signatory to the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2007, leading to the formation of the Sustainability Council. The Council seeks to reduce carbon emissions, conserve resources, and enhance quality of life by promoting sustainability in USU’s academic and service missions.
