The application for Dominion Energy’s environmental grant is now open

By on September 11, 2023

Deadline is Sept. 30 for nonprofit grant opportunity

Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation grant program helped Teens With a Purpose establish a garden as well as a Farmer’s Market in a food insecure neighborhood.

Nonprofits and educational organizations in the company’s service areas are encouraged to apply, including those in Virginia and North Carolina.

Eligible groups can earn up to $50,000 to support projects to improve the environment. Plus, public and private K-12 schools can apply for grants up to $5,000 for environmental education programs.

The deadline is 5 p.m. Sept. 30.

Since 2003, the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation has awarded nearly $40 million to projects that protect and improve the environment.

For example, this grant program helped Teens With a Purpose establish a garden as well as a Farmer’s Market in a food insecure neighborhood.

‚ÄúCreating the pop-up ‚ÄėHerban Farm Market‚Äô gave the teens the opportunity to share their knowledge and the sustainable food they planted, nurtured, and harvested,‚ÄĚ said Deidre Love, Founder, CEO of Teens With a Purpose.¬†‚ÄúPurpose Park has since been named a Certified Wildlife¬†Habitat, by the National Wildlife Federation, in part, thanks to the investment of Dominion Energy.¬†Wildlife is finding¬†quality habitats here- food, water, cover, and places to raise their young.¬† The ecosystem is beautifully¬†evolving.‚ÄĚ

Company leaders say these grants are a part of Dominion Energy’s efforts to improve the environment and provide educational experiences in the communities it serves.

“We are proud to support local organizations leading important programs that protect our environment, teach others how to do the same, and make nature more accessible,” said¬†Hunter A. Applewhite, President of the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. “As a company, we strive to be good stewards of our environment and natural resources.‚ÄĚ
