Abstract: 

We work to build partnerships that improve the environment.

Xcel Energy provides funding in four focus areas with two application cycles. Our operations have a unique connection to the environment, and the communities we serve count on us to produce energy responsibly, to reduce our impact and to conserve natural resources. We can do more to benefit the environment. Our Environmental Focus Area supports the following:

Environmental Education

  • Programs or projects that provide K-12 students with hands-on environmental education experiences and curriculum that foster an ethic of stewardship and conservation and that support academic content standards.
  • Programs or projects that provide training, resources and support to enhance the quality and effectiveness of K-12 environmental educators.
  • Environmental Stewardship
    Habitat and Park Projects: Partnership efforts between nonprofit entities and Xcel Energy that preserve, restore, conserve and improve wildlife habitat, open lands, wet lands, parks, trail systems or recreational areas.

    Special Projects/Partnerships: Projects that improve the environment through neighborhood beautification or cleanup efforts and that provide volunteer opportunities for Xcel Energy employees and retirees.

    Natural Resource Conservation: Projects that help protect natural resources, especially water, or build awareness for natural resource conservation, including interactive exhibits and displays at museums and other public facilities.

    Application Deadlines
    Xcel Energy provides funding in four focus areas with separate application cycles for each area. Organizations that are eligible to submit applications will be directed to the online application system. We do not accept applications via paper or email.
