Thank you for helping us meet our fundraising goal!
In July, we announced a goal of raising $40,000 before National Drive Electric Week, to support our vital programs at a time when the economic downturn was impacting many nonprofits, including Plug In America. We are so grateful that hundreds of supporters have donated more than $47,000, exceeding our goal!

EV drivers, like you, are at the heart of everything we do. For over 12 years, we have been the "Voice of the EV Driver," representing you in Washington, D.C., in training sessions with auto dealers, and at hundreds of in-person and online events around the country each year. Thank you for making this possible! Visit our Donate page >>
