At PG&E we know that a community's energy doesn't always arrive through power lines. It comes from the actions and efforts of those who live there. Our goal is to engage, support and improve the neighborhoods where our customers and employees live and work. Whether we're helping local communities launch new school programs for students interested in the energy industry or providing clean energy alternatives to underserved neighborhoods, PG&E is there making a difference.

Overarching Emphasis: We continue to prioritize support for underserved communities throughout our community investment program. In 2012, over 77% of PG&E's grant funding went to projects and organizations that assist people of low-income, communities of color, LGBT status, veterans, and those with disabilities, among others.
