Public Service... More Than a Name.

For more than 115 years, PSEG and its employees has been giving back to the communities where we live and work. The PSEG Foundation supports this mission with impact grants in the areas of sustainable neighborhoods, safety and STEM education.  

We also know that small grants can lead to big change. We accept unsolicited grant requests up to $10,000 through the Neighborhood Partners funding program. This includes sponsorships and event support. Nonprofits must apply in order to be considered and please review our giving guidelines before beginning an application.

Neighborhood Partners Funding Program

The PSEG Foundation provides grants in the communities where we do business including our New Jersey and Long Island service territories, as well as our operating territories in Salem, Burlington and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey, and our operating territories in Albany, NY, and Bridgeport and New Haven, CT.

Giving Guidelines:

  • Sustainable Neighborhoods
    • Building safe, healthy and sustainable communities
    • Our company’s commitment to environmental stewardship stretches beyond our own operations. We invest in public parks that improve the quality of life for local residents and in the environmental organizations that protect and preserve natural resources, address climate adaptation, and build sustainable communities.
  • Safety and Preparedness
    • Complementing PSEG’s safety vision, we seek to keep people and their homes safe, particularly around electricity and natural gas, and to prepare for and respond to emergencies.

Sponsorships & Event Funding

The PSEG family of companies provides support for dinners, events and targeted sponsorships serving the places we do business in New Jersey, New Haven and Bridgeport, Connecticut; Albany and Long Island, New York.
