Campaign for the Community


Campaign for the Community is PG&E’s year-round workplace giving program. It helps current employees and retirees raise money for qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations and schools. Campaign for the Community also matches those donations—up to $1,000 per person for individual donations and up to 100% of coworker-initiated fundraisers.

We’re proud of the 20-year history of the workplace charitable giving campaign. The value it provides to our coworkers and the organizations is huge. As of 2022, coworkers and retirees have contributed more than $100 million dollars in support to our communities.

What our volunteers say


blue quotation marks

I appreciate the fact I work for a company that has options readily available to their employees to support causes that are personal and meaningful to them. We are part of the communities we serve and many of our employees are deeply involved with their local schools, charities and supporting causes that have touched them personally.

PG&E Gas Dispatcher, San Ramon

Reading to children to help spark their imagination takes imagination itself! During a global pandemic that includes taking important safety measures, such as stay-at-home orders and social distancing. I’m so excited to be doing this project for Oakland Ed Fund remotely, and still being able to give back to the community, despite these restrictions.

Coworkers engaged in their communities


PG&E coworkers find many ways to engage and give back to the diverse communities and hometowns we live and work in.

Polina Ying Family
Through peer-to-peer fundraisers, coworkers aid the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine

As people leave Ukraine en masse following Russia's invasion—with little to nothing in tow—a growing humanitarian crisis is unfolding. Inspired to help, some PG&E coworkers have taken the initiative to set up peer-to-peer fundraisers through the company's community giving program.

Kelsey Piro
Why I give: SLC6A1 Connect

PG&E coworker Kelsey Piro's 4-year-old nephew Maxwell was diagnosed with SLC6A1 three years ago. At the time, doctors told the family he was one of 34 children with the disease. There was no treatment. There was no cure.

2021 Bakersfield Backpack Giveaway
PG&E volunteers take part in Central Valley backpack giveaways and help their hometowns

Brand-new backpacks brought bright smiles to the faces of elementary school students in Bakersfield and Madera this week. But the hundreds of volunteers, including two teams from PG&E, might have been even happier than the kids as they were able to return to helping their hometowns in person for the first time in a long while.
