Eversource Energy Foundation

Our mission is to make a healthier, stronger, sustainable and more equitable future for our customers and communities.

About The Foundation

We are proud to invest in organizations, initiatives and services that provide broad, meaningful and sustainable change in the communities we serve. In 2023, the Eversource Energy Foundation contributed more than $6.8 million to charitable organizations in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

The Eversource Energy Foundation is an independent, nonprofit philanthropic organization that is funded solely by shareholders from Eversource Energy and is dedicated to supporting our communities and making a positive difference in the lives of our customers.

The Foundation is governed by a board of directors. The board, composed of Eversource Energy officers, reviews Foundation program guidelines to ensure they reflect our values, mission and giving strategy.

2023 Accomplishments 

We provided $6.8 million in grants and sponsorships, including $4.8 million to support diverse, community based organizations. Additionally, through our signature events we helped charities across New England raise $2.5 million.
