Brightening Our Communities

For more than 130 years, we've partnered with local nonprofits and everyday community heroes to brighten our communities and build a better tomorrow, and today Edison International is one of the largest corporate charitable contributors in Southern California. 

Last year, we contributed $20 million in funding to support programs that help communities in our service territory shine bright while tackling tough issues, such as improving air quality, increasing access to national parks, and helping kids make a difference in the world by studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

More than 90% of our giving helps underserved residents, including diverse ethnic groups, seniors, people with disabilities, women, gay and lesbian populations, and low-income families.

Our Giving Priorities

Education

We believe education has the power to change lives, communities, and the world. More than 50% of our funding goes toward educational programs designed to help keep kids in school while opening doors to higher education.

We look for education programs that emphasize science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in middle school, high school, and college levels, including tutoring, scholarships, and college-access programs. We also support arts education programs in the middle school and high school levels

The Environment

Our commitment to protecting the environment began decades ago, and it’s deeply rooted in our corporate culture. We recognize that our operations do have an impact on the environment. To ensure a cleaner world for future generations, we support programs that educate and engage the public in preserving a healthy and sustainable environment, with a focus on programs aimed at students in middle school, high school, and college, and at adults.

Public Safety & Preparedness

Disaster can strike suddenly, anywhere, at any time, and earthquakes pose a real and ongoing threat in the region served by our utility, Southern California Edison.

We're committed to helping families and the community be prepared for natural and human-caused disasters, and our support is focused on programs that emphasize emergency preparedness and electrical safety.

Civic Engagement

We know that our success hinges on the success of the communities we serve.

To help keep our communities strong, we partner with organizations that provide vital services such as workforce development, including transition services for veterans, leadership development and capacity building for local nonprofits.
