Grants Supporting Critical Community Needs

For the fourth consecutive year, the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation will award up to $1 million in grants that address critical community needs to eligible 501(c)(3) organizations in communities served by Dominion Energy companies (see Geographic Eligibility below). The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation will consider grant requests up to $25,000 that support one or more of the following:

Priority will be given to efforts that:
