Generosity That Spreads the Power of Good
The generosity of the Alabama Power shareholders whose donations created the foundation decades ago continues to empower Alabama across five main initiatives.
2017 – A great year for giving.
The Alabama Power Foundation is a source of good, designed and dedicated to work for the advancement of the people of our state. We are the state’s largest corporate foundation, funded entirely through resources independent of Alabama Power’s customers. A managed trust of more than $130 million fuels our efforts, and is designed to do so for years to come.
