National Grid Foundation is reaching out in new ways to feature the organizations it supports and the benefits provided to the community it serves.

​​Lending a Warm Helping Hand

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany is making a difference through its Emergency Energy Assistance Fund so residents won’t be left out in the cold. Through a $120,000 grant from National Grid Foundation, Catholic Charities is able to provide emergency energy assistance to more than 1.400 people this winter.

In a difficult economic time, residents who are struggling to pay bills shouldn’t have to sacrifice a safe, warm home. That’s why the Emergency Energy Fund is vital to helping those in need. Residents won’t have to make a decision whether to pay the heating bill or purchase groceries.

As part of this the effort, Catholic Charities also has announced a challenge to the local community to open their hearts as well as their wallets. Catholic Charities and National Grid Foundation officials promoted the challenge to the fans at a Siena College men’s basketball game at the Times Union center.

National Grid Foundation is proud to support Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany for the past 10 years.


“It’s time,” Bob Catell said of his retirement from National Grid Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Twenty years ago, he had a vision and established the KeySpan Foundation now known as National Grid Foundation. After retiring from the company, Bob served on the Foundation’s board for nine years.
