PGE Foundation Accepting Applications From Oregon Organizations for Safe and Stable Families Program

Portland General Electric established the PGE Foundation in 1997 to improve the quality of life for Oregonians. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded grants totaling nearly $20 million.

Currently, the foundation is accepting applications for its Safe and Stable Families, which supports organizations that use preventive approaches to help Oregon families create stable environments where children can grow and thrive, with an emphasis on food insecurity, housing/homelessness, mental wellness, and parent engagement.

Grants are awarded for programs that help parents, grandparents, and guardians caring for children (up to age 26) develop stable family relationships, build economic security, and create a safe and consistent home environment. Priority will be given to projects that support underserved communities and that deliver measurable outcomes. Grant amounts will be determined on a project-by-project basis.

To be eligible, applicants must be an Oregon-based organization classified as 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service. Priority will be given to organization located in and serving counties where PGE has customers and power-generating plants, as well as those that operate collaboratively or in partnership with other nonprofits or agencies.
