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

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.

Applications accepted July 8 – August 30, 2019

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.
