We focus our funding on programs that will deliver measurable and sustainable impact in the following areas:

We encourage and promote innovation and advances in technology, sustainability, and efficiency as we work together to build a stronger community.
Environment: Programs that protect and improve the quality of our environment are essential to our customers  and our employees. Partnering with organizations that support education, conservation, preservation and energy efficiency, we work to promote environmental stewardship and awareness in the communities where we live and work.
Community Development: BGE is committed to programs that enrich community diversity and progress to improve living standards with new technologies, personal and professional development and growth for children and families in the communities we serve. We support advances in safety and emergency management by working closely with first responder agencies to provide the best possible community service.  Together with our community partners, we strive to positively impact the lives of all our customers, neighbors and employees.
