A Culture of Giving Back: Employee Giving & Volunteering at Edison
Charitable giving is an ingrained, important part of the culture here at Edison International, and we encourage everyone to give back. Whether they choose to take part in our organized community-volunteering events, volunteer on their own, raise money for favorite non-profits, or take advantage of our matching-gifts program, it’s all good with us.

Helping End Homelessness Among Veterans
Of the dozens of volunteer opporutnities available to Edison employees each year, our National Family Day events are among the most popular.
