Corporate Giving Program

A tradition of service

For more than a century, Puget Sound Energy has been delivering safe and reliable energy and investing in the communities where we serve and operate. Check out our report to the community.

Since 1997 alone, we've contributed more than $10 million to support local organizations and projects.

PSE's corporate contributions are funded exclusively from PSE's owners and employees.
