The Power of Culture

Arts and culture are vital to our communities. They enrich our lives, give us joy and make our communities desirable places in which to live. The Alabama Power Foundation is committed to finding new ways to enhance our arts and culture.

Elevate Grants

Elevate Grants work across all of our focus areas and are intended to help our nonprofit partners achieve financial stability, expansion goals, program enhancements and other mission-critical objectives. These robust grant packages are intended to be “game changers” for the organizations awarded them.

Foundation Grants

As we navigate the local impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we will modify our giving efforts to meet and adapt to the developing needs of communities. If your organization is seeking funding to address coronavirus relief needs, please apply for a foundation grant.

Applications are accepted year-round.

Classroom Grants

Teachers often have to pay for class materials out-of-pocket. Our Classroom grants seek to solve that problem by awarding grants up to $1,000 for materials to better the classroom environment, and in turn, enhance a student’s ability to learn.

Applications Accepted August 19 – October 13, 2019

Power to Play Grants

We support middle school and high school extracurricular programs. Studies show that students involved in extracurricular activities benefit both academically and in terms of mental health. Similar research has shown that participation in extracurricular activity greatly increases the probability that at-risk students will graduate.
