At BGE, we invest in organizations that support education, the environment, arts and culture, and community development programs. With a proven track record in addressing key community needs, we focus our funding on programs that can deliver measurable and sustainable improvements in the communities in which we serve and operate our business.

Our primary focus is on strengthening math and science education—after all, we hire hundreds of engineers and scientists. Recognizing that our future as a company and even as a society depends on the educated youth of tomorrow, we partner with other local organizations to host book drives, essay contests, and other programs and activities that foster a desire to learn from a young age.
Safeguarding the environment is beneficial to our customers, our service communities, and our employees. We are actively working to educate customers about the importance of energy efficiency, and we proudly support nature programs and organized efforts to restore prairie lands.
We believe it’s important to support arts and culture organizations integral to the health and vitality of the communities we serve. Local music and movie festivals, as well as theater productions and other artistic pursuits, enhance our understanding of other cultures and contribute to our education in fun and interactive ways. The arts bring us together.
Through our United Way Campaign and our own charitable outreach programs, we support a wide range of nonprofit organizations—from health and human services providers to after-school programming. Our commitment is continually strengthened in seeing the dedication and passion these groups have for their communities as well as the fulfillment we see in the many BGE employees who donate their time and energy to organizations dedicated to making a profound impact in the lives of others.
