Dayton Power & Light Company Foundation Announces $1.5 Million In Community Grants

The Dayton Power and Light Company Foundation has awarded 69 Community Grants totaling more than $1.5 million to community organizations for programs, capital improvement projects and program support. The grants will go to several organizations in DP&L’s 24 county service area and communities surrounding DP&L’s power plants along the Ohio River.

The grants support the DP&L Foundation’s philosophy of making a difference for our customers and the communities we serve by contributing to organizations that enhance the quality of life through health and human services and heightening the impact of education, the arts and culture. More than 200 DPL employees also volunteer their time and talents in community organizations each year.

“For DP&L, it’s more than just being a good corporate citizen,” said DPL President Derek A. Porter. “These Community Grants allow us to make a difference for so many people by helping to create communities that are engaged and vibrant and by supporting the health and human services programs that allow people to uplift their lives.”

“The DP&L Foundation Board is proud to support these very worthwhile organizations,” said DP&L Foundation Board Chairman Tim Rice, DP&L vice president, assistant general counsel and corporate secretary.

Since the DP&L Foundation was founded in 1985, it has awarded in excess of $29.5 million in grants.

For the first time, DP&L Signature Grants, aimed at supporting a new or innovative program by a long-term partner in DP&L’s community efforts, have been awarded to six organizations. The Signature Grants are one-year grants. Each year, at least two signature grants – one for the $100,000 plus level and one for the $50,000 plus level – will be awarded. The recipients of this year’s Signature Grants will be announced in January.

Among the Community Grants awarded are:
  • Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum for construction of a children’s learning center
  • East End Community Services in Dayton for the Youth Development Center programs
  • Canine Companions for Independence for a training program for assistance dogs to improve life for people with disabilities
  • Children’s Hunger Alliance to expand school-based programs to feed children around our 24 county service territory
  • Rebuilding Dayton to improve homes for low-income and elderly in Dayton
  • Daybreak for shelter, housing and employment programs for youth and young people in crisis
  • Maysville Initiatives in Kentucky to fund summer day camp for children
  • Dayton Contemporary Dance Company to sponsor its 45 th anniversary season
