PG&E Set To Give Mmore Than $32 Million To Local Communities In 2015
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and its employees and retirees will give more than $32 million to local nonprofits and schools in the coming year. Of that amount, employees and retirees contributed a record-breaking $7.3 million through the utility’s annual Campaign for the Community giving initiative.
“I’m proud to be part of a company whose employees and retirees don’t just say they care about their communities; they prove it every day by giving back,” said Tony Earley, chairman, CEO and president of PG&E Corporation. “This year’s Campaign for the Community will go a long way toward supporting schools and nonprofit organizations and helping our local communities thrive.”
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 $62 million through Campaign for the Community, benefitting local schools and nonprofit organizations in communities where PG&E employees live and work, primarily in Northern and Central California. These contributions are in addition to the millions that PG&E donates annually throughout its service area.
This year, pledges were made by more than 9,200 employees and retirees. That is an 18 percent increase over last year’s total of approximately 7,800 participants.
Contributions will be distributed throughout 2015 to thousands of 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.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company, a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG), is one of the largest combined natural gas and electric utilities in the United States. Based in San Francisco, with more than 20,000 employees, the company delivers some of the nation’s cleanest energy to nearly 16 million people in Northern and Central California.
