Being a leading partner in the communities we serve starts with our employees. Along with volunteering, employees show commitment to our communities by donating to their own favorite charities and by serving on boards. Our employee giving programs support the time, talents and philanthropy of current and former Eversource employees.
- Matching Grants - encourages employee-directed giving by matching employee donations to eligible organizations
- Dollars For Doers - provides financial support to a community group where an employee is actively and regularly involved on their own time
- Pledge Partners - matches pledged funds for events where employees participate (e.g., walk-a-thons and races) to support non-profit agencies
The Eversource Energy Foundation supports employee philanthropy each year by matching annual United Way donations and through the employee giving programs. In 2020, the Eversource Energy Foundation made more than $1.7 million in charitable donations on behalf of its employees and retirees.
In total, Eversource and our employees contributed more than $2.5 million in 2020 to support wide-ranging initiatives and causes that contribute to the wellbeing of our communities.
