The Power of Community

The Alabama Power Foundation looks for ways to strengthen Alabama communities large and small. From recruiting new businesses and employers, to training our workforce, to improving our communities in a multitude of ways, we’re proud to be involved.

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.

Gateway Grants

A gateway to opportunity

From the makers of Gee’s Bend to the natural beauty of the Cahaba, there is so much to be discovered in Alabama. In fact, it seems like every town has something special to share. And we are here to help. Our Gateway grants are intended to unlock the economic and cultural value within our communities by helping towns invite new visitors, new industries and new neighbors to their part of our great state.
