WE’RE WORKING WITH YOU TO MAKE OUR COMMUNITIES STRONGER

For more than a hundred years, we’ve been lighting the way for families to grow and businesses to prosper in communities across Appalachia, the Midwest and Southwest. Today, we strengthen that legacy of service by tackling our community’s most basic needs: food and housing. And education. Giving back in these ways and promoting environmental sustainability are an important part of who we are. In fact, we invest more than $16 million a year to care for others in our community and to promote and protect our environment. Working together with you, we are making our families healthier, our economies stronger and the future brighter for our communities.

A Passion for Caring

American Electric Power, the AEP Foundation and our operating companies provide financial and volunteer support to organizations that help friends and neighbors in communities across our service area—including yours.

AEP volunteers joined students and their families at the Future Possibilities presentation ceremony at Motorists Insurance in Columbus, OH. The Ready, Set, Goal! program matches fourth- and fifth-grade students at eight Columbus City Schools with coaches who help kids set and achieve personal or community goals. AEP employees coached at two schools including AEP partner Georgian Heights Alternative Elementary.
