CenterPoint Energy strives to make a positive impact in our communities through philanthropic giving and employee volunteerism. We also provide opportunities for employees to participate in company-organized volunteer efforts and encourage them to contribute their time and talents to causes they care about.
CenterPoint Energy’s community involvement is focused on our strategic giving priorities:
Within Community Vitality, we look for initiatives leading to thriving neighborhoods, cities and states. This includes investments into affordable, energy-efficient housing, quality of place projects, and ensuring our communities are safe and green.
At CenterPoint Energy, we believe education is key to ongoing success of our communities. We invest in quality literacy programs ranging from early childhood through adult literacy and tutoring programs as well as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education programs targeted to under-resourced areas and/or underrepresented populations. Lastly, we look for opportunities to continue building workforce development programs addressing needs of our communities.
