PSEG Foundation

Good corporate citizenship is one of Public Service Enterprise Group's (PSEG) core values and an integral part of the Company’s way of doing business. One way in which PSEG demonstrates its community engagement is by providing funding to nonprofit organizations. Through the PSEG Foundation and the PSEG's Corporate Event Funding, PSEG supports a variety of programs in areas that align with PSEG business strategies. Contributions made to nonprofit organizations are viewed not merely as gifts, but as strategic investments.

The PSEG Foundation invests in programs that support education, the environment, community development and economic development. Organizations with programs that meet these criteria can apply online (required) from January through October. Completed applications will be forwarded internally to the appropriate PSEG representative. Please read our priority area descriptions and other criteria carefully. Feel free to print our list of application questions and shortcut tips before applying.

In the Education arena, PSEG’s main focus areas are: workforce development for K-12 or higher education; science/technology/engineering/math (STEM) programs; and, limited funding for special youth programs providing education to underserved populations. This seems to be a nice match for BDPA SITES program.

It appears that this is a funding source that only works for our BDPA New Jersey chapter if they are interested in partnering with BETF on a grant proposal.
