Xcel Energy Foundation Announces Grants to Area Nonprofits

Xcel Energy

A number of nonprofit organizations in Texas and New Mexico have received funds from an area utility company.

The Xcel Energy Foundation has awarded $221,000 in grant funding to 31 nonprofit groups in Texas and New Mexico.

Some of the organizations receiving the grants include the South Plains Council Boy Scouts of America, the South Plains College Foundation, the Shallowater Education Foundation, Wayland Baptist University’s Lubbock campus, Women in Science Educators in Lubbock, and the Rio Blanco Heritage Foundation in Crosbyton.

“Communities that value education and the environment are healthy communities,” said Riley Hill, president and CEO of Southwestern Public Service Company, an Xcel Energy company. “By supporting the nonprofits that promote these values, we hope to contribute to the overall health and prosperity of the communities we are privileged to serve.”

The group states in a press release that education and environment focus are two of four annual grant programs in which area nonprofits can participate. The other areas are economic sustainability, as well as arts and culture.

The foundation also matches United Way contributions dollar for dollar, and matches employee gifts to nonprofit agencies dollar for dollar as well.
