Corporate Philanthropy & Employee Giving
Our parent company, Edison International, offers grants up to $5,000 to non-profit organizations whose missions and programs support our focus areas: education, the environment, public safety & preparedness, and civic engagement.
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.

About Our Giving
Our contributions are paid for by shareholders of our parent company, Edison International, and not by utility customers.
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 2012, they raised more than $3.9 million in charitable contributions to benefit thousands of nonprofit partners; and also raised more than $140,000 for disaster relief efforts.
Giving back also includes volunteering, and last year our employees and retirees gave 239,000+ 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.
