Puget Sound Energy Foundation and Puget Sound Energy (PSE) have announced 167 nonprofit grant recipients as part of a $1,150,000 community investment effort that supports outstanding local community organizations working to increase resiliency across Washington State by helping to rebuild and strengthen efforts in food security, shelter or childcare programs, nonprofit staff training and other capacity building projects.
The PSE Foundation is committed to helping communities where Puget Sound Energy serves its customers and has facilities. Thirteen organizations in Kitsap County received grants this year, including the Bainbridge Island Senior Community Center, Helpline House and Peacock Family Services. Over 375 grant proposals were received from local nonprofit organizations within the 10 counties Puget Sound Energy serves. A full list of grant recipients can be viewed here.
“We have been inspired by the tremendous response to our efforts of Empowering Community Resiliency across our region. It’s particularly encouraging to expand our support to include training and development of nonprofit staff and volunteers,” said Andy Wappler, president and chairman of PSE Foundation. “This is another way we’re able to nurture these incredible community partners who continue to adapt and evolve working to solve for some of our most pressing community needs.”
