Corporate Philanthropy & Employee Giving
Our parent company, Edison International, is committed to addressing important issues like education, the environment, public safety & emergency preparedness, and civic engagement. Last year, it gave $20 million to local community programs that make a difference in these areas, and an additional $1.2 million in college scholarships for STEM students.
Most of Edison’s giving is targeted to help meet the needs of diverse ethnic groups, seniors, people with special needs, women, low-income, and gay and lesbian populations – groups that are often underserved.
Four Priority Giving Areas
Through our annual campaign and other employee-led efforts, our employees support causes that benefit young, elderly, disabled, and low-income people in local communities. In 2014, they raised more than $2.6 million in charitable contributions to benefit thousands of nonprofit partners.
Giving back also includes volunteering, and last year our employees and retirees gave 192,000 hours to help build and unite the communities where they live and work. Our parent company, Edison International, recognizes their commitment to volunteering with incentives such as donations to the nonprofits of their choice.
