Illinois Clean Energy Grant

The Mellinger Foundation is the recipient of a grant from the Illinois Clean Air Community Foundation. This grant made it possible for the Foundation to replace lighting fixtures throughout the building with those that are more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Through its Energy Efficiency Program, the Illinois Clean Air Community Foundation supports nonprofit organizations in their efforts to reduce energy consumption in buildings. By reducing energy consumption, the Mellinger Foundation is helping the environment and saving money for future scholarship awards.
