PG&E Will Give Nearly $36 Million to Local Communities In 2016

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and its employees and retirees will give close to $36 million to local nonprofits and schools in the coming year. Of that amount, employees and retirees contributed $7.9 million through PG&E’s Campaign for the Community, the most ever pledged in the company’s annual giving initiative.

“PG&E is 100 percent committed to helping build a better California. We show this not only through our work to deliver safe, reliable, affordable and clean energy to millions of homes and businesses, but also through our spirit of community giving. I’m particularly proud of the way our employees step up each year to support the cities and towns where we live and work,” said Tony Earley, chairman, CEO and president of PG&E Corporation.

Through PG&E’s Campaign for the Community, employees can designate donation recipients and contribute amounts of their choosing through payroll deductions or one-time donations. Since 2000, PG&E employees and retirees have raised more than $70 million through Campaign for the Community, benefitting schools and nonprofit organizations primarily in communities where PG&E employees live and work in Northern and Central California.

This year, pledges were made by nearly 10,000 employees and retirees. Contributions will be distributed throughout 2016 to nearly 6,500 schools and nonprofits—including environmental organizations, community centers, food banks, animal shelters, veterans groups and many others—to help keep important programs and services thriving in local communities.

These contributions are in addition to the millions that PG&E donates annually throughout its service area through the PG&E Foundation—focused on supporting education, economic and community vitality, and the environment.
