Dominion Energy is encouraging nonprofit and educational organizations to apply for $1.5 million in environmental grants to be distributed this year through the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. This competitive grant process is designed to support work to improve the environment and provide educational experiences in communities served by Dominion Energy.

“Protecting and conserving our environment is an important focus of our company,” said Hunter A. Applewhite, president of the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. “Each year, our foundation supports many organizations that offer innovative and engaging environmental programs in our communities. These grants help groups truly make a difference for natural resources in places we all call home.”

Since 2003, nearly $37 million has been donated to projects that protect and improve the environment. Dominion Energy will consider grants that focus on one or more of the following priorities:

  • Educating K-12 students and the public about environmental science
  • Protecting and preserving natural habitats
  • Improving open spaces and making nature more accessible
