Employee Volunteerism

Eversource employees take great pride in volunteering, which helps provide a better quality of life in the neighborhoods where we live and work.

More than 4,000 employees and their families volunteered over 26,000 hours at company-sponsored events in 2020, supporting nonprofit organizations throughout the service territory.


Eversource employees are allowed two workdays a year to volunteer at company-sponsored events. Whether it’s for larger organizations like the United Way and Special Olympics, or working at food pantries, we recognizes that partnerships with charitable organizations complement our mission to deliver reliable energy and superior customer service.

The following videos share a small glimpse of how Eversource supports our community.

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.
