We’re Committed to the Community
More than $19 Million in Community Giving
For more than 125 years, we’ve helped build stronger communities. Using funds from shareholders of our parent company, Edison International, we contribute to organizations that help meet the many needs in our region’s diverse communities. We focus on programs that benefit low-income, disabled, elderly, gay, and lesbian populations, as well as women and ethnic groups. Our four major giving areas are education, the environment, public safety and preparedness, and civic engagement. See the 2012 Edison International Community Giving Report (pdf).

Supporting Diverse Communities
Our commitment includes supporting businesses owned by women, minorities, and disabled veterans. We’ve demonstrated this for more than 30 years through our supplier diversity efforts. In that time, we’ve spent more than $9 billion with these “diverse business enterprises” (DBEs) — and in 2010 became the first electric-only utility to achieve more than $1 billion in annual spending with DBEs.
Public Safety and Preparedness
Experts agree: planning ahead for natural disasters can significantly heighten the ability to manage life-threatening situations. We believe education and training on emergency preparedness is an important way to keep our loved ones and communities safe. We’re the founding partner of the American Red Cross’ PrepareSoCal initiative, a three-year preparedness campaign that encourages all Southern Californians to Get a Kit, Make a Plan, and Be Informed.
