The PPL Foundation on Wednesday (7/8) announced more than $500,000 in grants to 116 nonprofit organizations across central and eastern Pennsylvania to support education initiatives and strengthen community resources.
“PPL Foundation proudly supports the important work being done by the nonprofit sector to improve life in our communities,” said Ryan Hill, president of the PPL Foundation. “Whether it’s providing critical homework help for young students, a path out of homelessness for families in need or innovative economic recovery efforts that benefit all residents, this year’s grant recipients are focused on transforming their communities.”
Among the grants awarded were 19 for libraries and other literacy-focused organizations in support of Cover to Cover, PPL Foundation’s initiative to improve child literacy through reading and summer learning programs.
PPL is committed to supporting communities across its 29-county service area and providing tools that help empower economic vitality.
This year, the PPL Foundation also provided $800,000 to support those struggling with economic hardships due to COVID-19 and $100,000 for racial justice and equity initiatives.
