The Power of a Good Education
The Alabama Power Foundation is proud to serve our children through a number of initiatives designed to improve their education. After all, of the many things we can give our children, a solid education is one that cannot be taken away.
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.

Our Foundation grants focus on underserved segments of our population. We fund projects to enhance education, community life and arts, and to improve the environment and health and human services.

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.
