Making a Difference in the Community

We’re committed to addressing important issues like education, the environment, public safety & emergency preparedness, and civic engagement. We gave $19.7 million to community programs that make a difference in these areas in 2013, along with $3.1 million in STEM scholarships to help students earn degrees and contribute to future innovation. More than two-thirds of our donations are focused on helping diverse ethnic groups, seniors, people with disabilities, women, gay and lesbian populations, and low-income families — all groups that are underserved.  

Our Community Grants Program: Applications Accepted March 1 - 31 & June 1 - 30

Our Community Grants program provides grants up to $5,000 to non-profit organizations whose missions and programs support our priority areas. This year, there is a change to our application cycle. Unlike in the past, when we had three grant application periods, this year we have only two: March and June.

Collaborating With the Community: Our 2013 Report

At Edison International, we believe that our role goes beyond our core mission of safely providing reliable and affordable electricity. We believe we have a common mission with the communities we serve.
