PPL Corporation Citizenship Overview 

PPL Corporation goes beyond its core business by focusing its energy on being a good neighbor through a long-standing commitment to corporate citizenship. Our commitment to the environment, philanthropic contributions and the dedicated volunteerism of our employees allow us to improve the communities in which we live, work and serve. 

Our employees are an extension of our commitment to our neighbors, schools and the environment. Whether we’re cleaning up creek beds, protecting endangered species, campaigning for charities or mentoring school children, we continually seek new ways to invest our time and resources into our communities. It’s how we do business, and our way of keeping our promise to support a better tomorrow. 

As a keystone in each of the communities we serve, PPL Corporation contributes millions of dollars annually, partnering with nonprofit organizations working in the areas of education, community and economic development, and environmental stewardship. 

PPL’s Philanthropic Mission  

PPL strives to empower economic vitality and quality of life by promoting and enabling vital, sustainable communities, empowering each citizen to fulfill her or his full potential. 

Major Grants

Our goal is to be a catalyst for change by supporting nonprofit organizations working to achieve sustainability, particularly in the areas of early childhood education, community revitalization and workforce development.

Philanthropic Focus Areas 

Our objective is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve, with a particular focus on the 29 Pennsylvania counties served by PPL Electric Utilities.  As a keystone in each of the communities we serve, PPL Corporation contributes millions of dollars annually, partnering with nonprofit organizations working in the areas of: 

Education 

Building a strong foundation is critical to the success of today’s students. Contributions in this area will be focused on early childhood education and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs in distressed areas to ensure that as many children as possible have access to high-quality education. 

Community Revitalization 

A strong community is one in which all residents are empowered to fulfill their potential. Safe housing, prepared emergency response teams, accessible hospitals and even vibrant arts and cultural opportunities all work together to create a healthy community. 

Workforce Development 

Over the next decade, our industry will undergo tremendous change. We’re updating our infrastructure, building new power lines, installing smart grid systems, improving reliability and exploring new opportunities to help our customers use energy wisely. We need a diverse, highly trained workforce to continue this challenging work. 

Environmental Stewardship

Providing energy responsibly is at the core of all that we do, from practicing sustainable vegetation management to educating customers on the efficient use of energy. Contributions in this area support programs as varied as wildlife habitat cleanups and watershed management.
