A Culture of Giving Back
Brightening Our Communities
Today, Edison International is one of the largest corporate philanthropic contributors in Southern California. We partner with local nonprofits and everyday community heroes to brighten our neighborhoods and build a better tomorrow.
Last year, we contributed $20 million in funding to support programs that help communities in our service area shine bright while tackling tough issues, such as improving air quality and access to clean energy solutions; increasing community resilience and disaster preparedness; advocating for increased diversity, equity & inclusion; and helping kids make a difference in the world by studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
More than 90% of our giving helps underserved residents, including diverse ethnic groups, seniors, people with disabilities, veterans, women, LGBTQ+ populations and low-income families.
