Helping Employees Give Back

We are incredibly proud of how passionate our employees are about their communities. Their leadership and active engagement have inspired us as a company to help them contribute on an even greater scale. In 2017, our employees gave $2 million and volunteered over 22,000 hours. We offer a variety of programs to help make this happen.

Matching Gifts

To help our employees support educational, and arts and culture nonprofits, we match donations dollar for dollar to double the impact of our staff’s generosity.

Volunteer Incentives

Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP)

We help employees supplement the time and talent they give to an organization by offering them the opportunity to request a direct grant to any charity or school where they volunteer at least 10 hours.


Season of Giving

Our employees are passionate about giving back and during the holiday season, their generosity is wide-spread. Throughout our Season of Giving, employees volunteer at organizations they love and earn extra dollars for that charity through grants from our Sempra Energy Foundation. These heartfelt projects include delivering holiday baskets to seniors, donating toys to kids in need and serving meals to our disabled and veteran communities.


Grant Programs

Challenge Grants

Every year,  our companies organize support campaigns for a selection of health and human services organizations. Employees passionate about these causes have the opportunity to participate in fundraising events and activities and earn matching donations for the organization from the Sempra Energy Foundation.


Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and an annual tradition at Sempra Energy. On Giving Tuesday, every dollar donated by employees to support hunger relief is tripled by the Sempra Energy Foundation.
