The Dominion Foundation

We care about the communities that we serve. We invest in communities through programs, volunteer activities and charitable giving. The Dominion Foundation, our philanthropic arm, is dedicated to improving the physical, social and economic well-being of the communities served by Dominion companies. Dominion and the Foundation annually award about $20 million to causes that protect the environment, promote education and help meet basic human needs. Foundation grants are funded by shareholder dollars and are not borne by customers.
