Charitable Giving

At Georgia Power, bringing energy to a community though our volunteer service and charitable donations is as important as providing energy through our power lines. We have five areas of charitable focus that we deem critical: health and human services, education improvement, environmental stewardship, civic and community outreach and arts and culture.


Our charitable giving commitment occurs through the Georgia Power Foundation, Inc., corporate giving and employee giving. The Foundation provides grants to organizations that are enriching the communities we serve. Since its inception, the foundation has contributed over $170 million to qualifying non-profit organizations. It ranks as the fourth-largest corporate foundation in Georgia in terms of giving.

Areas of Charitable Focus
