PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company ("PG&E"), are dedicated to building better communities for our employees and our customers with a program of charitable giving that addresses critical social, educational and environmental challenges, helping to ensure a safe and prosperous future for all Californians.  Our program has four strategic charitable focus areas:

    • Emergency Preparedness and Safety
    • Education and Workforce Development
    • Environment
    • Economic and Community Vitality

In 2018, we contributed nearly $28 million to charitable organizations and supported over 1,200 different nonprofit organizations (PDF, 814 KB).

Targeted Charitable Giving Program

On January 29, 2019, PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company each filed for Chapter 11. One outcome of this development was the need to refine and reassess our current charitable programs and priorities. 

We are proud of the difference we've made in the lives of our fellow Californians. This will continue in 2019 with a smaller charitable giving program focused primarily on Emergency Preparedness and Safety initiatives.

Support will be prioritized for helping communities directly impacted by wildfires recover and in wildfire-prone areas for public safety education and preparedness programs. We look forward to making a difference with these critical programs in the coming year.

Please contact the PG&E Community Relations team at with any questions and to inquire about funding opportunities.
