Change text size:  T  T  T  ? 

NOTE: Our philanthropic giving is paid for by the shareholders of Edison International, and not by utility customers. With the exception of the Community Grants Program, we do not accept unsolicited funding requests and instead proactively fund initiatives that we have identified to best meet the needs within our strategic program areas.

Edison International supports organizations that are:

  • Primarily focused on Edison International’s four giving priorities: Public Safety/Preparedness; Environment;  Civic; and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) Education with a focus on providing opportunities for underserved communities
  • Higher Education scholarship grant requests limited to: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors
  • Organizations that receive a higher education scholarship grant will be required to complete supplemental information for scholarship recipients (i.e. name, email, phone number, college, major, scholarship amount)
  • Serve the community without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, gender or gender identity, physical or mental disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, marital status or veteran status
  • Hold an IRS 501(c)(3) charitable status
  • Make records available for regular independent external audit and make the results available to all potential contributors
  • Comply with applicable laws regarding registration and reporting
  • Observe the highest standards of business conduct in their relationships with the public
  • Have a method by which to measure and track and report one or more program outcomes and specific results that demonstrate measurable societal impact

Edison International grant programs do not support:

  • Individuals
  • Private charities or foundations not aligned with our principle areas of charitable giving
  • Religious organizations, unless the particular program will benefit a large portion of a community without regard to religious affiliation
  • Political causes, candidates, organizations or campaigns
  • Organizations whose primary purpose is to influence legislation
  • Fraternities or Sororities
  • Endowments or capital campaigns
  • Research studies or video projects, including student films and documentaries, unless related to initiatives Edison International is already supporting
  • Local, regional or national sports teams or activities
  • Medical research and disease-specific initiatives
  • Medical procedures for individuals
  • Tickets for contests, raffles or other activities with prizes
  • Promotional merchandise
  • Any group whose activities are not in the best interest of Edison International, its affiliates, employees, shareholders, customers or the communities we serve.
  • Donations to charities in lieu of compensation to an individual for services rendered to the Company (or any of its affiliates)
