At PECO, we invest in organizations that support education, the environment, arts and culture, and neighborhood development programs. With a proven track record in addressing key community needs, we focus our funding on programs that can deliver measurable and sustainable improvements in the communities in which we serve and operate our business.
Energy for Education programs encourage students to stay in school and develop their full potential; promote math and science; improve workforce skills; and provide opportunities for limited income students through scholarships, mentoring and internships.
Energy for the Environment programs improve the quality of our environment, promote environmental education, conservation and preservation; develop cleaner sources of energy; and protect endangered species.
Energy for Arts & Culture programs make the arts more accessible to a wider audience and showcase the wide variety of performing and visual arts organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Energy for Neighborhood Development programs that enrich community diversity; support economic development and promote and assist children and families in the communities we serve.
PECO awards grants in our service area (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Philadelphia and Montgomery and York Counties) to qualified nonprofits in the four strategic focus areas of education, environment, arts and culture, and neighborhood development. Limit of one grant per organization in a 12-month period. PECO does not make grants to individuals or to religious organizations (unless programs are non-denominational).
