Did you know that as a Constellation customer, you can apply for small grants to help fund projects, causes and initiatives that are important to your community? That’s right! Through our Community Champions program we award grants (up to $500) to groups and organizations working to better their communities with special consideration given to those focusing on education, the environment, or youth.
Since the beginning of the Community Champions program, Constellation has awarded over $80,000 to support 180 customers from all over the country. These grants have helped to fund projects including science fairs, youth sports, tree planting and more.
