Georgia Power is dedicated to giving back to the communities they serve. The Georgia Power Foundation has three focus areas:
Since its inception, the foundation has contributed over $170 million to qualifying non-profit organizations.
The Georgia Power Foundation does not provide grants to individuals, private elementary or secondary schools, religious organizations, nor political campaigns or causes. They also 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.
501(c)(3) organizations can apply for a Georgia Power grant. Preference is given to Georgia-based organizations with goals to improve the quality of life of Georgia's residents. Governmental units are also eligible for some programs.
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.
Most awards are $25,000 or less.
