Powerful Partners

For more than a century Puget Sound Energy (PSE) has prided itself in serving our communities. Keeping the lights on and gas flowing—safely and reliably—is at the center of everything we do. This standard is part of what makes the Pacific Northwest a great place to live, work and play. We realize there are local non-profits working toward a similar goal, and we want to help you in your efforts. One way we do that is through the PSE Powerful Partnerships Grant.

The goal of this grant is to develop strong community partnerships with organizations that share our passion for energy related sustainability.

Grant recipients will be non-profits interested in learning about energy related sustainability within their organization and with a desire to share energy related information to the communities they serve.

Powerful Partnerships is a select group of non-profits also serving within our 6,000-mile service area. It is a year-long collaboration that includes:

  • A financial contribution (amount varies by county)
  • Six or more engagement opportunities
  • Informative content to share via communication channels

We’re proud to say that since 2016, we've partnered with 80 local organizations and invested $830,000 to help them achieve their strategic goals.
