HELP ICM RAISE FUNDS top
Help Yourself and Help ICM Raise Funds
As many of you are aware, ICM has reached a major milestone when we broke ground on Phase I of our much anticipated Islamic Center. So let’s keep up the momentum by raising funds in order to complete the building project. Let us show you how you can benefit ICM without giving cash and save on your electric bill at the same time. ICM has embarked on a project which will provide the much needed monthly sustainable income without any donations from the community. Do you realize you could choose your source of “GREEN” electricity with potential savings to your electric bill and at the same time help ICM raise funds on a monthly basis?
► No Signup Fee
► Affordable Green Energy
► Long term savings on your electric bill
► Monthly sustainable income
► Simple means of fundraising for the MasterPlan
► Example of sound leadership
Let your power choice help you and ICM without changing your utility provider and you will continue to receive one bill from your utility provider. (Eg. Pepco, BG&E etc). Most importantly, provide a cleaner environment for future generations by using renewable energy.
