Description

Entergy’s Corporate Giving programs include cash as well as in-kind contributions that address myriad community needs: arts and culture, community improvement and enrichment, education and literacy, the environment and healthy families. Open Grants Entergy’s Open Grants Program focuses on improving communities as a whole. We look for giving opportunities in the areas of arts and culture; community improvement/enrichment; and healthy families. While we will accept applications from educational and environmental programs, these areas are primarily funded through separate processes. Click here to access the Entergy Open Grant guidelines and application. Community Partnership Grants Entergy's Community Partnership Grants program awards up to $1,000 for projects that effectively impact education & literacy, community improvement/enrichment, healthy families, or arts & culture. Grants will be made only to the following types of organizations: 1) non-profit organizations that are tax-exempt under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code (“Tax Code”), or 2) schools, hospitals, governmental units and religious institutions providing programs that benefit the public at large. Each organization may submit only one application per year for a Community Partnership Grant. Any organization that has received a Community Partnership Grant for three consecutive years must wait one year before applying again. Organizations must be located within Entergy’s service territory. The application period for Community Partnership Grants is January 26 – March 31.

United Way Campaigns Hundreds of employee volunteers participate in the coordination of United Way campaigns company-wide. A combination of employee and retiree gifts along with corporate dollars help United Way organizations in communities where Entergy’s customers and employees live and work. Matching Educational Gifts This program offers Entergy full-time employees and retirees the opportunity to assist the accredited universities, colleges, or secondary schools of their choice. Entergy will match dollar for dollar employee contributions from $25 to $3,000 annually for high schools, colleges and universities. The Power to Care No one should have to choose between food or medicine and electricity. But sadly, many elderly and disabled individuals face these choices every day. Through the Power to Care, local nonprofit agencies are able to provide emergency bill payment assistance to seniors and disabled individuals in crisis. None of the donations are used for fundraising or administrative purposes, so 100% of each contribution goes to help those in need. Plus, the Power to Care doubles the impact of new pledges and one-time donations through matching shareholder contributions – up to $500,000 annually.

Entergy's volunteer program, Community Connectors, recognizes and encourages the volunteer efforts of Entergy employees and retirees. In addition to providing communities with volunteer services, the Community Connectors program gives Entergy volunteers an opportunity to augment contributions to their communities financially with “Contributions for Connectors” grants.

Entergy Charitable Foundation The Entergy Charitable Foundation (ECF) is a private foundation dedicated to supporting charitable organizations in the diverse communities where Entergy customers and employees live and work. The Foundation's goal is to support initiatives that help create and sustain thriving communities. ECF has a special focus on low-income initiatives as well as educational and literacy programs.
