Grant History

The Puget Sound Energy Foundation was created in 2006 with a $15 million endowment. It also received a $5 million investor contribution in 2009 upon completion of our merger with Puget Holdings LLC. None of the foundation's grants will come from Puget Sound Energy's utility customers. Annually the Foundation is required to distribute five percent of the preceding year's average assets in charitable distributions.
