Lu Winsor Environmental Fund

The Peninsula Light Company started the Lu Winsor Environmental Grant Program as an offshoot of their Green By Choice program in 2003. This program provided an opportunity for PenLight members to add green power to their fuel mixture. In return, PenLight 
provided $5,000 annually for the grant program.
Pierce County Water Programs liked the idea and agreed to match the PenLight’s contribution.

 

In 2014, the foundation joined in supporting the annual grant program with proceeds from the Cider Swig. Today, the program is administered by KGI Watershed Council together with Pierce County Water Programs and the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation which has provided a permanent home for the grant program.

Once the plan was adopted in 2000, Lu continued to serve on the newly formed KGI Watershed Council until his passing in 2003.
