The PPL Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2017 Sustaining Grant program. Organizations focused on education, workforce development and community revitalization can apply through March 31, 2017 for grants ranging from $1,000 to $25,000.
Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $450,000 in grants to 95 nonprofit organizations in communities throughout PPL Electric Utilities’ 29-county service territory.
We’re proud to partner with these admirable nonprofit organizations that are working to better the lives of the people who call our region home.
Our support for education has a particular focus on early childhood education, literacy, summer learning, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs.
In 2016, PPL Foundation Sustaining Grants helped fund a STEM Magnet Program at Bloomsburg University, support a summer learning program at Casa Guadalupe in Allentown and revitalize a community park in the Camp Curtain neighborhood of Harrisburg, to name just a few.
PPL is committed to supporting communities across its 29-county service area and providing tools that help empower economic vitality.
The PPL Foundation awards grants in spring and fall. The grant cycle open now — Sustaining Grants — can be used for general operating expenses. The Major Grants in the fall should be used to support major initiatives such as program expansions, capital campaigns and other major projects.
