The American Electric Power Foundation complements a tradition of corporate philanthropy exhibited by American Electric Power and its regional utilities in support of AEP's community relations goal: "To support and play an active, positive role in the communities where we live and work."
The American Electric Power Foundation was created in 2005 to continue to support that goal. The Foundation generally will consider requests of not less than $15,000 or those for multi-year commitments from organizations in the communities served by AEP's regional utilities or where AEP has major facilities. The Foundation may also consider -- by invitation only -- initiatives outside of AEP's 11-state service area. AEP and its regional utilities continue to emphasize corporate giving on local initiatives. Applications are accepted by invitation only.
Focus AreasThe following focus areas will be eligible for consideration by the Foundation:
