Grant and Volunteer Programs
Our partnerships in the communities we serve help to address climate change, build clean energy and tech careers, and champion social justice in our service territories.
As a partner in meeting New York and New Jersey's ambitious clean energy goals, Orange & Rockland is making more investments to usher in this future equitably and efficiently.
As part of that commitment, we are re-aligning our charitable grant efforts to invest in nonprofit organizations who share our vision to combat the effects of climate change, advance social justice in the communities we serve, and create green jobs across our service territory.
Orange & Rockland feels an urgency to confront the threat that climate change poses to our communities and help New Yorkers and New Jerseyans in our service territory adapt to a changing world. We believe that every New Yorker and New Jerseyan should be able to benefit from a more sustainable grid.
Beginning in January 2024, Orange & Rockland will focus its strategic grantmaking on organizations working in the following areas:
Climate Change & Environmental Stewardship
We are helping more people benefit from the transition to cleaner sources of energy, reduced pollution, and cleaner air for more climate-resilient communities.
We are investing in community engagement, empowerment and advocacy solutions to break down economic barriers and create pathways to equity and inclusion. We will work in solidarity with community leaders and organizations to address injustices, create opportunities, and uplift movement building toward social and systems change.
Clean Energy & Technology Career Readiness
We are equipping people with in-demand skills and competencies to build a clean energy jobs pipeline, and support a green economy and sustainable energy sector.
