Cultivating Community Partnerships

Con Edison offers financial and other support to nearly 300 local nonprofit groups whose activities advance strong, vibrant communities. Here are some ways we support diversity in our service area.

Education Fund of the Women’s Forum of New York

The annual scholarship awards encourage mature women overcoming adversity to fulfill their potential through the pursuit of an undergraduate college education and community service.

Foundation for Ethnic Understanding

The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding promotes racial harmony and strengthens intergroup relations by encouraging face-to-face dialogue between leaders of ethnic communities. A proud partner since 1991, Con Edison currently supports the foundation’s efforts to fight Islamophobia and extremism, including the “#Muslims Are Speaking Out” social media campaign.

Jericho Project

Con Edison’s support for Jericho’s Employment Program provides employment and housing placement services for veterans returning to New York City from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

New York City LGBT Historic Sites Project

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals and communities have profoundly influenced and contributed to the history and culture of both New York City and the country. With Con Edison’s support, the New York City LGBT Historic Sites Project is producing an interactive website and map of LGBT sites from the earliest history of New York City through 2000.
