Across our communities, many are facing unprecedented financial and emotional hardships as a result of the pandemic. As a result, local relief agencies and nonprofits are struggling to meet their needs. 

To help, the Duke Energy Foundation has provided more than $6 million dollars in support of hunger relief, local health and human services and educational initiatives. These funds have been focused on meeting the needs of our local communities through a variety of ways. Initial giving focused on hunger relief, such as meals for seniors, children and families affected by school closings and on support for local health and human services organizations. Moving forward, our giving has focused on public utility assistance across most of our service territory, feeding and supporting our critical healthcare workers in the Midwest and Duke Energy small business support. In addition, we continue to support employees, through the Relief4Employees program.

We have given these organizations the flexibility to use these funds to address the immediate needs in their community and to put their remaining funds toward general operating expenses.

We know the needs are great for many right now and we will continue to look for ways we can support our customers, communities and employees.
