About this funder:



Since our company’s formation in 1903, Public Service has meant more than a name. It represents our commitment to the communities where we serve and live.

We partner with some of the most effective organizations across our territory to strengthen communities and improve quality of life. Learn more about PSEG Foundation investments in the areas of sustainable neighborhoods, safety, and STEM education.

  • Sustainable Neighborhoods
    • Building safe, healthy and sustainable communities

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.
