Eversource's mission to deliver reliable energy and superior customer service includes our commitment to the strength of the communities we serve.
On April 8, Eversource announced over $2 million in donations to nonprofit organizations across its three state service area supporting customers and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. During these challenging and uncertain times, the Eversource Foundation will continue to focus its giving on qualified non-profits in our service area that are providing COVID-19 related work or services.
