Making a Difference in the Community

We’re committed to addressing important issues like education, the environment, public safety & emergency preparedness, and civic engagement. Last year we gave $19.7 million to community programs that make a difference in these areas, 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.  

Collaborating With the Community: Our 2013 Report

Our annual Community Investment Report offers a snapshot of the variety of partners we support, and the impact being made by these partnerships. The stories shared here highlight some of the very outstanding work our community partners are doing to improve the quality of life in the community.

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.
