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 developing work ready students who know themselves and their interests and are prepared for the fast changing world of work.

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).
