For more than 170 years, Washington Gas has been an integral part of the growing metropolitan Washington, D.C. region. As a responsible corporate citizen, Washington Gas has developed a Charitable Giving Program that is designed to make a meaningful and lasting impact on the communities it serves through contributions, in-kind support and volunteer resources.
The Charitable Giving Program focuses on three primary areas: : Healthy and Safe Communities, Bright Futures and Environmental Champions.
Emphasis is placed on educational activities targeted toward youths in the kindergarten to twelfth grade age range. Attention is given to the development of math, science, technology and business skills. Consideration is also given to arts-related programs.
The focus in this area is on programs that promote cleaner air and water and that protect and preserve the ecological system of the metropolitan region.
Healthy and Safe Communities
Consideration is given to health organizations that strive to improve the health and well-being of individuals within the community. Emphasis is also placed on energy assistance programs for low-income residents to heat and cool their homes, reducing illness and casualties resulting from exposure to extreme temperatures.
An organization requesting support must have a valid 501(c)(3) status according to IRS governing rules.
- Support is provided for specific programs rather than for general funding.
- Support is not provided to religious organizations for sectarian purposes, political associations or to organizations with strictly a sports focus.
- Support is not provided to individuals or to capital or endowment campaigns.
- Support is provided for programs in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia region.
Please note that we now review all requests via an on-line submission process.
