Community Giving and Sponsorships

PSE provides community contributions to organizations that are aligned with our business priorities in the areas that we serve. All of PSE's corporate contributions are funded exclusively from PSE's owners and employees. This community investment is in addition to the grants provided by the PSE Foundation.

If you would like PSE to consider sponsoring your event, please reach out to your local community affairs representative using the map to the right or email us at communityengagement@donhuey.net. For upcoming PSE events, check our events calendar: 53q.donhuey.net/en/pages/pse-events


PSE Foundation

In addition to corporate giving, the PSE Foundation, an independent nonprofit entity, partners to help support the communities where Puget Sound Energy serves and operates. The PSE Foundation provides charitable grants to nonprofit organizations helping keep our vibrant communities safe, supported, and thriving. None of our corporate giving from PSE nor funding provided by PSE Foundation ever come from PSE ratepayers. For more information on our competitive grants through the Foundation, please visit www.psefoundation.org


Tribal Relations

PSE works in partnership with sovereign tribal nations to ensure we are our customers’ energy partner of choice and to reach our goal of getting Beyond Net Zero Carbon by 2045. Through our work, we foster trusted, long-lasting relationships with the tribal nations in our service territory through proactive outreach. We engage regularly and proactively with tribal communities and tribal organizations to find creative opportunities for collaboration. As a company we consistently work to increase tribal relations acumen to support the development of processes and policies that create a new model for our industry.

Community in Action

Community Spotlight 1 

Community Spotlight: Community Support and Non-Profit Giving

Community Affairs bolsters the efforts of local non-profits to combat our region’s most pressing issues. We are thrilled to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound, and we had the honor of presenting them with a BIG check for $30,000. This exciting contribution will fund activities that support the mental health and physical well-being of young people in BBBSPS mentoring programs including activities like their annual picnic and special outings for youth-mentor matches.

Community Spotlight: Major Projects

Our clean energy transition means new opportunities throughout our service territory. That’s why the Community Affairs team works with local groups to successfully bring new PSE projects and programs (such as battery storage, EV charging stations, and community solar) to you! Through direct engagement with community and organizational stakeholders, the team ensures a local perspective when implementing new projects and programs.

Community Spotlight: Strategic Partnerships
The Community Affairs team builds partnerships with local non-profits to create local solutions. In Whatcom County, we celebrated a new electric school bus that serves Head Start students attending their program in a rural area. Hearing from our communities about their greatest needs is the first step to creative collaboration.
