Southern California Edison is a major supporter of Hope Through Education, not only through company donations, but they also provide incentives for their employees to donate and volunteer. Their new Community Grant program expands Edison’s giving to support more grassroots organizations. The Community Grant program, which provides grants up to $5,000 per year, was established to help a wide range of organizations whose missions and programs fall within their four investment areas.

Their philosophy of investment is centered on the thought that all people should have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. While tackling critical issues, they consciously do so with an eye to how these efforts can assist, in particular, the underserved population comprised of: ethnic groups, seniors, disabled, women, low income, gay and lesbian. Over 70% of all California contributions were directed to underserved communities during the past three years. They will continue to focus on this population for years to come. The diversity of those they serve is also critical as to how they shape community investments. As they seek solutions to society’s challenges, it is the great determination and diversity of everyone working together, that will help make our communities a better place to live, work and prosper.
