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 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.

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. Funding may also be used to support COVID-19 relief efforts such as technology support, cleaning and sanitation supplies, as well as mental health needs for students and educators.
Nonprofits who provide those services and are partnering with local school systems who meet the grant criteria may also apply for grants.
Application deadline is February 26.Learn More & Apply
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.
Applications are Nov. 9 – Jan. 29.
