Making a Difference in the Community

For more than 130 years, we've partnered with local nonprofits and everyday community heroes to 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 our communities 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).

Nearly 90% of our giving helps underserved residents, including diverse ethnic groups, seniors, people with disabilities, women, gay and lesbian populations, and low-income families.
