Edison International: Making a Difference in the Community for 125+ Years
We’re committed to givng back, and have been for well over a century. Our philanthropy is focused in ways that address important issues like education, the environment, public safety & emergency preparedness, and civic engagement. Last year, we gave $20 million to community programs that make a difference in these particular areas, along with $1.2 million in STEM scholarships to help students earn degrees and contribute to future innovation.
Overall, more than two-thirds of our giving help underserved populations, including diverse ethnic groups, seniors, people with disabilities, women, gay and lesbian populations, and low-income families.
