A Long Tradition of Investing in the Community
More than 85% of our donations are designed to help create new opportunities to thrive. At Edison, we’ve been giving back for more than 125 years.
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.
