Apply for a Grant

501(c)(3) organizations can apply for a Georgia Power grant.

 

Our charitable giving management coordinates our company’s efforts to give back to the communities we serve. Strong preference is given to Georgia-based organizations and programs that seek to improve the quality of life for the state's residents.

Guidelines

  • We do not provide grants to individuals, private elementary or secondary schools and religious organizations, nor do we fund political campaigns or causes.
  • We do not support organizations whose policies or actions discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or disability.
  • Grant requests up to and including $25,000 are evaluated on an ongoing basis.
  • Grant requests greater than $25,000 must be reviewed and approved by the foundation board, which meets in May, August and December. All grant applicants are notified by the end of the month after each respective board meeting.
  • Tax-exempt organizations may receive contributions once per year period and reapply on an annual basis.
  • We work with region and plant leadership teams to evaluate grant proposals within their local areas. Grant applications from region and plant locations can be submitted online and will be routed to appropriate region management.
