"We are pleased to be working with Renewable Social Benefit Funds and Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company on this solar project, as this is part of our entire campus strategy to lower our carbon footprint," said Patrick J. Modugno, Vice President, Administration and Chief Financial Officer, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. "Renewable Social Benefit Funds' financing will allow us to allocate assets to other charitable purposes, a double win for the Foundation."
The Hilton Foundation project is the first collaboration between RSB Funds and Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company as they team up in this area. "As a company that aims to create a sustainable future, Panasonic is delighted to be working with RSB Funds to make this project possible for the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation," said Jim Doyle, president of Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company. "They have a great record of achievement in making the benefits of solar power available to non-profits and other similar organizations."

Hilton Foundation on this leading renewable energy project," said Jonathan Jaffrey, president of RSB Funds. "The Hilton Foundation's leadership in the nonprofit community in this area will help to demonstrate the benefits of clean energy to the community and the benefits it will provide."
