Community Connectors, Entergy’s volunteer program, is yet another way that Entergy helps non-profits throughout our area of operations. Through Community Connectors, Entergy recruits our employees and retirees to serve as volunteers in the communities where they work and live…but that’s not all. The program also recognizes and encourages the volunteers’ efforts by providing grants they can designate to the eligible non-profits of their choice. For every 20 volunteer hours, each employee or retiree earns a $250 grant up to an annual limit of $750
Grants – Community Improvement/Enrichment
Entergy supports community-based projects that focus community enrichment and improvement. A few examples include civic affairs, blighted housing improvements, and neighborhood safety. By giving to communities in this way, we actually help them become more self-sufficient.
Grants – Healthy Families
Children need a good start to grow into healthy, well-adjusted adults. With that in mind, we give to programs that have a direct impact on children educationally and emotionally. We’re also interested in family programs, like those that better prepare parents to balance the demands of work and home.
We have been blessed to get not only volunteer workdays with our local Entergy employees, but also a grant to help us with our future electrical needs as they come up.
