We Put Energy Into What Really Matters
Coronavirus Response and Recovery
The coronavirus pandemic has created extraordinary challenges in our communities. The Avangrid Foundation is stepping forward to help provide critical assistance during this time of need.
The Foundation’s community partners are often the first point of contact for individuals and families faced with difficulties. The Foundation is uniquely suited to assist with efforts to make sure families are safe, have enough food and have adequate shelter.
By strategically collaborating with nonprofit organizations that have a national and local reach, the Foundation efforts will go directly to those who need assistance the most.
The Foundation has allocated $1 million for COVID-19 response efforts, its largest emergency outlay ever.
National organizations like the American Red Cross, Americares, Meals on Wheels and Feeding America will benefit from the Foundation’s support. Local nonprofits will be able to continue their critically needed work.
The Avangrid Foundation puts energy into what really matters. Now, more than ever.
