On December 11, 2023, National Grid Foundation celebrates 25 years of giving and making a difference in the lives of its neighbors. No matter how it’s counted, 25 years or 300 months or 1,303 weeks or 9,132 days – the Foundation has been the part of fabric of the communities it serves.

It has gifted nearly $38 million dollars assisting its partner organizations which in turn help tens of thousands of people and revitalize hundreds of communities.

Foundation History

​​National Grid Foundation was created to enhance the quality of life across its grant making territory. The Foundation strives to help its partner organizations create opportunities to today’s and tomorrow’s educational and environmental issues. Its objective is based on the principle that giving people the tools to build hope is an essential ingredient in the development of individuals, families and building stronger communities. Since its inception in December of 1998, the Foundation has granted $38 million to local community organizations.

The gift, along with its annual heating fund grants, combines to support emergency heating programs at record $1.5 million level

Here on National Grid Foundation's website we're looking to make applying for a grant a lot more understandable and easier than ever before.

We're always looking for ways to improve the user experience. So, if you have any suggestions how we can make our site even more helpful, please feel free to contact us.  

WE BELIEVE that addressing global issues begins at the local level. We support and engage non-profit organizations that take ownership for implementing educational and environmental programs and solutions. These partnerships help build stronger communities -- the important first step in transforming individuals, neighborhoods, cities and, ultimately, our planet.

National Grid reaffirmed its dedication to its communities with the establishment of the  National Grid Foundation in December 1998. A $20 million endowment was provided as an outgrowth of its passion for and commitment to the communities it serves. In September 2000, National Grid enhanced its commitment with an additional gift of $10 million and another $5 million gift in 2007. Since its inception, the Foundation has provided more than $38 million in grants to hundreds of non-profit organizations across its grant-making territory.

The National Grid Foundation is more than a funding source. Through its partnerships, the Foundation is afforded the opportunity to work with a host of diverse non-profit organizations. Our experience has shown that by working together we can bring about change that inspires people and transforms communities.
