The merger of Duke Energy and Progress Energy will allow us the opportunity to leverage the time, talent and resources of both companies across the many communities we serve. Our companies have a long history of community support, and we look forward to building upon this legacy to maximize the impact of our charitable giving and employee volunteerism.
At Duke Energy, supporting the welfare of our communities is directly tied to our commitment to sustainability. We believe the decisions we make today will determine our long-term prospects as a company. One of those decisions is to ensure our communities have the resources and support they need to thrive – now and well into the future.
Through The Duke Energy Foundation, we provide grants to charitable nonprofit organizations in alignment with the Foundation's areas of focus. Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, nonprofit organizations serving legacy Progress Energy service regions in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida may now apply for grants through The Duke Energy Foundation. The Foundation only provides grants to nonprofit charitable organizations that reside in our service territories.
