We put energy into what really matters

Since 2001, the Foundation and its predecessors has invested millions of dollars in grants, contributions, scholarships and matching gift programs with a focus on building sustainable, vital and healthy communities, preserving cultural and artistic heritage, advancing education and improving the lives of people in the communities we serve.

The Avangrid Foundation primarily invests in qualified charitable organizations, programs and philanthropic partnerships in communities where AVANGRID and its subsidiaries operate.

The Avangrid Foundation is an affiliate of the Iberdrola Foundation, based in Spain. The giving carried out by the Avangrid Foundation is wholly independent of Iberdrola, the Avangrid Management Company and/or locally-based corporate contributions programs administered by the subsidiaries and operating companies of Avangrid.

The Foundation’s investments are part of an annual coordinated planned giving process cultivated and overseen by an independent Board of Directors and the Iberdrola Foundation Committee.   

In collaboration with Avangrid, the Foundation also recognizes Avangrid's scope of activity in executing the company’s corporate social responsibilities entrusted to it by the board of directors of Avangrid.
