Brightening Our Communities

For more than 130 years, we've partnered with local nonprofits and everyday community heroes to brighten our communities and build a better tomorrow, and today Edison International is one of the largest corporate charitable contributors in Southern California. 

Last year, we contributed $20 million in funding to support programs that help communities in our service territory shine bright while tackling tough issues, such as improving air quality, increasing access to national parks, 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, women, gay and lesbian populations, and low-income families.
