Environmental Champions

SDG&E’s Environmental Champions initiative supports 501(c)3 non-profit organizations whose programs work to preserve and protect our local environment in San Diego County and southern Orange County. 

This year, the Environmental Champions initiative seeks to support efforts to increase climate science education in our region. Applications must address how your program works to inform and inspire the public to take action to protect our planet from future climate impacts.

  • Clean air
  • Clean energy
  • Clean water
  • Water conservation
  • Waste reduction

Through this year’s initiative, organizations can apply for program funding that supports the following programs in low-income and disadvantaged communities:
