Edison International, a public utility holding company, has recently pledged $1 million to local nonprofit organizations in California.

The company is committed to ensuring the safety, health, and well-being of the employees and customers and is ready to offer support services during this pandemic.

In addition to the recent charitable donation of the company, it has already announced the donation of $150,000 to the COVID-19 LA County Response Fund of the California Community Foundation as well as $100,000 to each of the following recipient organizations:

Community Action Partnership Orange County’s CEO & President, Gregory C. Scott has expressed his appreciation towards the support of its partner, Edison International, as well as the community to reduce the impact and challenges of COVID-19. He added that the company is striving to continuously deliver food and other assistances as well as serve its mission to combat poverty during the pandemic.

Additionally, employees of Edison International, Edison Energy and SCE have joined hands to serve 4 local nonprofits & other organizations catering to communities affected by COVID-19 outbreak, namely:

  • Inland Empire Community Foundation
