The PGE Foundation works in collaboration with the community to help improve educational outcomes, inspire critical thinking through arts experiences and strengthen family stability.

Education grants focus on middle and high school, career readiness and college-level programs with success in improving student achievement, technical knowledge and soft skills needed in today’s workplace.

Arts Education grants support integrating art and culture into the curriculum and expanding access to arts experiences for young people.

Safe and Stable Families grants focus on preventive programs that promote family stability in the areas of food insecurity, housing, mental wellness and parent engagement.

Grants will be awarded to nonprofits located in areas where Portland General Electric has customers or power-generating plants (PDF).
