Investing in our Communities
SDG&E’s mission to build the cleanest, safest and most reliable energy infrastructure company in America is what drives us every day. Equally important, is the dedication our employees have to improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and serve. Employees volunteer their time and talent to support hundreds of different causes in the community through donations, charitable giving and programs, including SDG&E Environmental All-Stars and SDG&E Challenge Grants.
Through our corporate giving program, we support and partner with hundreds of community-based nonprofit organizations in San Diego and Southern Orange County whose programs impact underserved communities to:
Develop environmental champions who are informed and engaged in climate change and clean transportation solutions
Develop public safety programs that encourage emergency preparedness, response and recovery plans, and strive for resilience during emergencies and disasters
Inspire future leaders and develop the next generation of innovative, diverse and talented members of the community to drive economic growth and success

SDG&E’s COVID-19 Response:
Supporting Customers Through Tough Times
As our country, state and region work to navigate the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, SDG&E has taken many actions to protect our customers and employees:
Delivering Reliable Service
Committed to maintaining safe and reliable electric and natural gas services every day – and suspended all disconnections due to unpaid bills for residential and small business customers.
Providing Payment Aid to Customers
Supporting customers and local businesses with flexible payment plans and assistance programs.
Supporting the Community
$3 million donated to the San Diego COVID-19 Community Response Fund to address food insecurity, distance learning and other households needs.
Following Safety Measures
Protecting customers, employees and our community by strictly following safety measures suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
“As a large employer that works with many diverse suppliers to meet our mission of delivering clean safe and reliable energy, SDG&E understands the value small businesses bring to the regional economy. When they thrive, our region thrives. To support economic recovery from the pandemic, we are more committed than ever to grow our supplier diversity program and encourage other local employers to do the same.”
