We Put Our Energy Here
Through its many subsidiaries, including Atlanta Gas Light, AGL Resources touches more than 4.5 million residents in 10 states. We are proud to have been part of the fabric of our communities for more than 150 years. We believe that part of our corporate responsibility is to give back to our communities, and our philanthropic focus is designed to make a meaningful impact in the community we serve.
Areas of Focus
To make the most meaningful impact in our communities, Atlanta Gas Light focuses on these distinct areas of giving:
- Energy Assistance: We support programs which primarily help low-income households and low-income senior citizens afford their natural gas energy consumption. These programs include weatherization projects and emergency energy assistance.
- Education: With an emphasis in literacy, math and science, this support includes public secondary schools (K-12); public and private colleges and universities.
- Environmental Stewardship: We support projects such as clean air, conservation, and greenspace.
- Community Enrichment: We support programs specific to minority leadership, women leadership, arts and culture, business leadership and/or economic development.
30th Anniversary of H.E.A.T.
In 2013 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Heating Energy Assistance Team (H.E.A.T.). Formed by Atlanta Gas Light and Frances F. Pauley, the founder of the Georgia Povery Rights Organization, H.E.A.T. has helped more than 92,000 Goergians by providing financial assistance for winter heating bills.
AGL Resources Private Foundation
We are proud to be a partner in the communities we serve. We strive to maintain a keen sensitivity to issues affecting our communities and our business. We show our dedication and corporate citizenship through our various foundation grants, community outreach programs, and other corporate charitable giving programs. We realize that we cannot support every worthy cause in all our communities and make a meaningful impact. Therefore, most grants approved by the foundation are for organizations that already have historical partnerships with the foundation and are within our service territories – Georgia, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Tennessee, and Texas. Unsolicited grant requests are welcomed, but most are rarely approved by the foundation.
