Glory Glory Sacramento Fund
- August 25, 2016
When we first met with folks at Sacramento Republic FC, they shared how much the community meant to them and this region. We wanted to be a part of their purpose and vision to make the Sacramento region into the most inspiring, energetic and rewarding place to live, work and play. Sunworks has always had a very generous referral program for our customers. If someone provides a referral via our PowerPay Referral Program that results in a solar installation, we provide a referral reward bonus to the referrer for their support.
We decided, the only thing better, would be not just rewarding the person who referred us a new customer, but also a donation to a Glory Glory Sacramento approved charity in their name. So from today forward, if you refer Sunworks a new solar customer, we will not only give you a $500 referral bonus, we match it and donate $500 to the Glory Glory Sacramento Fund Charity of your choice.
Your indomitable hearts will support so many worthy local causes!

CDP works collectively to engage the Sacramento community in affordable performing arts experiences during the summer; a period that is normally a time of unemployment for Sacramento’s resident professional dancers.
CDP provides resident artists with an opportunity to: pursue their art form, make a sustainable living, and participate in society by using a performance as a platform to express their voice. CDP’s goal is to demonstrate the real and lasting impact that the arts have on society and inspire our community to explore Sacramento’s varied arts scene.
