CenterPoint Energy strives to make a positive impact in the communities we serve through philanthropic giving and employee volunteerism. We look for initiatives that contribute to thriving neighborhoods, cities and states. This includes investing in affordable, energy-efficient housing and quality of place projects resulting in flourishing communities.



At CenterPoint Energy, we believe education is key to the ongoing success of our communities. We invest in quality literacy programs ranging from early childhood through adult literacy and tutoring programs as well as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education programs targeted to under-resourced areas and/or underrepresented populations. Lastly, we look for opportunities to continue building workforce development programs addressing needs of our communities. 



The CenterPoint Energy Foundation strives to be a catalyst in our communities by leveraging everyday opportunities and resources to achieve extraordinary outcomes. That's why we invest in initiatives that not only improve our stakeholders' lives today, but also build a strong foundation for tomorrow. CenterPoint Energy recognizes that our success - and the success of our neighbors is linked to the vibrancy of our communities.
