At Georgia Power, we work to make Georgia the best home for everyone. We do it by helping to preserve our state’s economic vitality through our five focus areas of giving – education, arts, environmental, civic and community engagement, and health and human services.
We are dedicated to improving and strengthening educational initiatives to help students across the state build brighter futures. That’s why in 2018, through the Georgia Power Foundation, we contributed over $6 million to educational programming, schools, scholarships and educator training that focus on the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These efforts not only focus on advancing the student experience, but also provide educators with the tools necessary to motivate their students. Through these programs we hope to influence generations of students to think critically and to be excited about careers in science and technology – after all, it’s the passionate, educated and driven students of today that become the bright minds of our state’s workforce tomorrow. Georgia Power supports educational initiatives throughout the state and builds awareness about careers in the energy industry by offering educational grants, plant tours, educational resources and more.
We believe that preservation of the arts is essential to Georgia’s legacy. That’s why in 2018, through the Georgia Power Foundation, we gave over $1.2 million in support of local and regional arts and cultural programs. The arts are a huge part of Georgia’s rich heritage – they foster the critical and creative thinking that strengthens our state’s economy. That’s why we are committed to ensuring that the arts remain a strong fiber in the fabric of our communities.
