The Sempra Energy Foundation is proud of the commitment to the community employees of the Sempra Energy family of companies show every day on and off the job. Employees participate in several employee programs funded by the Sempra Energy Foundation to help our communities.
Employees who support their community through volunteerism are encouraged to apply for the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) which rewards employees for their dedication of time and talent to charities. In 2016, the Sempra Energy Foundation processed VIP grants totaling nearly $150,000 to over 600 charities on behalf of employees of the Sempra Energy family of companies. In addition, the Sempra Energy Foundation supports the dedication of employees who contribute their time and talent to charitable organizations in their communities during the holidays through the Season of Giving Program which awarded over $150,000 to over 100 charities in support of employees.
To foster giving, employees who make contributions to eligible education or arts and culture charitable organizations are encouraged to apply for the Matching Gift Program. Over $800,000 were matched to nearly 550 deserving organizations in 2016 through this dollar-for-dollar matching program.
Through the Challenge Grant Program, the Sempra Energy Foundation encourages employees to get involved in efforts to raise funds for health and human services organizations. In 2016, $565,000 was donated through this program by employees of which $271,000 was matched by the foundation.
