AEP Connects volunteer grant program discontinued

by on March 6, 2012

Due to continuing budgetary pressures, the AEP Connects dollars-for-doers mini-grant program has been discontinued. The System-wide program was launched in fall 1998 to recognize the significant volunteer efforts of active and retired employees with schools and non-profit organizations in the communities where they lived and served. Grant applications approved by nonprofit organizations as of today, March 1, will be processed. New applications approved by organizations beyond this date will not be processed.

Over the past 14 years, the AEP Connects grant program provided more than $1.1 million in more than 8,000 donations to schools and eligible non-profits. Each grant was made in recognition of more than 40 hours of employee volunteer service over a 12-month period.

AEP and its employees have a long history of supporting and playing an active, positive role in the communities where we live and work dating back to the earliest days of the company. While the AEP Connects grants program will be missed, employees will undoubtedly continue to serve the schools and non-profit organizations in their communities that are important to them and that provide essential services to those communities.

Across our 11-state service territory and wherever we have operations, thousands of active and retired employees help make their communities better places through their volunteer service to schools and non-profits each year. We sincerely thank every employee who volunteers for making a difference for the better for all of us.
