In addition to conducting its own programs, Dominion works with non-profit partners to support a variety of state, regional and local community endeavors.
Dominion East Ohio is proud of the work being done throughout the communities we serve, and wants to recognize those social revitalization efforts. Ohio cities or communities can share in the $100,000 being awarded by Dominion for economic and social revitalization efforts.
Funding for the awards comes from the Dominion Foundation, which is dedicated to the economic, physical and social health of the communities served by Dominion companies.
Dominion and Inside Business Magazine take pride in offering the Community Impact Awards, and view it as another tangible step towards strengthening Ohio communities. Proudly, this is the 17th year that Dominion and Inside Business Magazine have teamed up to recognize communities and organizations that are making a difference in Ohio.
