Community Investment and Involvement

Moving our communities forward...

At Evergy, we’re committed to empowering a better future for our customers and our communities. Making a positive impact in the communities we call home is a foundational component of our business.

We're here for you during this time by pledging $2.2 million to local COVID-19 relief, bringing our 2020 planned giving to over $8 million. Here's how we're helping our agencies, communities and customers:

  • Emergency grants to help non-profit agencies on the front lines delivering essential services to our communities. We've donated $400,000 to over 50 agencies.
  • Hometown Economic Recovery Program. We're now accepting applications from registered 501(c)3 and 501(c)6 nonprofits for programs and projects focused on aiding in the short- and long-term recovery efforts in our service territory. Grants can be requested in amounts between $5,000 and $25,000 and will be awarded in two phases. Phase one recipients have been posted. Applications for phase two are open until October 1. 
  • A new economic development tool called SizeUp to help develop and nurture new and expanding businesses. 
  • One million dollars to assist customers with energy payments. We're expanding on flexible pay arrangements for residential and small business customers, committing to $1,000,000 to Dollar Aide, Project DESERVE and other programs that assist customers with energy payments. 

Our community investment program is based on strategies that help our customers and region move forward. We look for innovative solutions to solve root causes, so that our efforts and actions are truly making an impact in our hometowns.
