Entergy is marking 20 years of delivering solutions for customers in need.
WHY THEY GIVE
Entergy’s passion lies in helping the communities they serve and live in. That passion has inspired them to pursue innovative low-income programs, the Entergy Charitable Foundation, various economic development programs, environmental initiatives and company-wide support for employees’ volunteer and philanthropy efforts. Entergy believes that philanthropy is a part of the sustainable value they provide as a company, and that charitable giving, whether financially or through volunteering, is part of powering life in their communities.
Each year, Entergy shareholders contribute $16 to $18 million in grants, reaching out to more than 2,000 nonprofit organizations throughout its four-state service territory. The company also offers numerous in-house programs dedicated to lifting up those customers of lower or fixed incomes, from their The Power to Care program to their Super Tax Day program and their Beat the Heat initiative.
Entergy exists to grow a world-class energy business that creates sustainable value for their four stakeholders: customers, employees, communities and owners.
