2023 Campaign for the Community Raises More Than $275,000

Employees rally together to support nearly 400 local nonprofits

Duquesne Light Holdings (DLH) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 29 are celebrating the organizations’ commitment to the community following the 2023 employee giving initiative. The annual Campaign for the Community, which encourages employees at DLH and IBEW to donate to local nonprofits of their choice for a company match, raised more than $275,000 last year benefiting 395 organizations. ​

Some notable beneficiaries included the Dollar Energy Fund, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, among many others. Employees donated toward causes that matter most to them, including community development, emergency response and health and medical causes. ​

“I am humbled by the generosity of our employees and energized by the many meaningful causes they support,” said Christine Waller, DLC’s vice president of communications and corporate responsibility. “As one of our core values, ‘community’ is defined by our commitment to serve others as we deliver a clean energy future for all, and this year’s campaign is a great example of this value in action.”

A Decade of Consistent Community Impact ​

Reflecting on the past decade of giving, DLH employees have remained steadfast in their commitment to the community. Employee donations over the last ten years tell a story of consistent dedication, with an average annual contribution of more than $252,000.

DLC’s campaign structure gives employees greater flexibility to donate to organizations of their choice, which has enhanced their philanthropic spirit while supporting DLH’s vision of a clean energy future for all. ​
