The Duke Energy Foundation is currently not accepting grant applications. We are upgrading our grant management system and will open our applications in early 2023. In order to file a grant in our new system in 2023, you must register your organization in the new system.
Powering our Communities
The Duke Energy Foundation is proud to power the vitality of our communities through philanthropy focused on vibrant economies; climate resiliency; and justice, equity and inclusion.
Over $30 million in charitable grants each year are the driver behind impact and improvements in our communities. Additionally, our employees and retirees volunteered more than 70,000 hours with nonprofit organizations last year, contributing $2 million in estimated value of their volunteer time.
State by State Focus
These grants respond to the unique needs of each of the states in which we operate to maximize impact for our communities.
