PECO Directs Corporate Giving to Four Key Areas.
We fund programs that deliver measurable, sustainable improvements in the communities we serve. We invest in organizations that have proven track records in these areas:
Programs that teach students the fundamentals of energy to build interest in the energy industry, the trades, and STEM fields through in school and out of school programs, summer camps, and enrichment programs. Encourage students to develop their full potential promoting math and science, improve workforce skills, and encourage personal and professional development through scholarships, mentoring and internships and career exploration. Support workforce development and training programs that provide resources, information, and skilled trades preparation.
Programs that build on our commitment to protecting and preserving the environment by playing a leading role in our region’s transition to a clean energy future to combat climate change. Programs that improve the quality of our environment; promote environmental education, conservation, and beautify neighborhoods.
Equal Access to Arts and Culture:
Cultural institutions with a broad range of programs and activities designed to make arts and culture more accessible to a wider and more diverse audience including underserved communities and Title 1 schools.

Specifically, programs and nonprofit organizations that support a range of offerings from emergency response to major civic institutions.

PECO Powering the Arts Program
Arts education, engagement, and participation are essential to enhancing the human experience, celebrating our differences, and creating a powerful connection to individual and shared experiences. Connecting to and engaging in cultural activities at any age is fundamental to lifting the human spirit and honing critical thinking skills. Engaging in art offers a range of benefits, such as stimulating the imagination, enhancing creativity, and community bonding.
PECO's new competitive grants program, PECO Powering the Arts, helps community-based arts and non-arts groups to reach new and diverse audiences with arts and culture programming by reducing barriers to their participation. PECO recognizes how important equitable access to the arts is and how arts education, engagement, and participation are essential to enhancing the quality of our lives and communities. We believe investing in community-based arts and culture organizations connects people to opportunity and each other.
