San Diego Gas & Electric's annual campaign to donate $1 million to charity began Tuesday, giving nonprofit organizations a chance to apply for their share.
It's the fourth time SDG&E has rolled out the nearly month-long charitable program, known as its Inspiring Future Leaders initiative. The initiative opens grant opportunities to nonprofits aimed at developing youth leaders through mentoring, leadership and character development, college and work preparation and programs for underserved K-12 students in science, technology, engineering and math.
Applications from nonprofits looking to win awards through the initiative must be received by Feb. 28, and can be submitted on SDG&E's website at sdge.com/community. Through a competitive request-for-proposal process, individual organization grants will be awarded for up to $25,000, while collaborative projects could win up to $50,000.
“Our nonprofit community partners play such an important role in helping to foster our future generation of leaders,” Frank Urtasun, regional vice president of external relations for SDG&E, said in a release. “We are proud to support them in reaching as many of our youth as possible.”
SDG&E expects to make the grant awards in April.
