Who we are

Community remains a core value for Vectren and its employees supporting creative solutions in meeting community needs, and the Vectren Foundation contributes to the well-being of the communities in which we live and work, and focuses its efforts on opportunities that help contribute to a sustainable future. The Foundation provides funding for nearly 400 nonprofit organizations throughout its service territory. Through Vectren's support, our local communities are able to support home weatherization and energy education programs that help struggling families reduce utility costs, help children gain access to quality education programs, and give adults workforce training that will give them access to jobs with a fair living wage.

Common questions

No, there is neither a deadline for application nor a funding cycle. We accept applications year-round.

If your agency is located outside of our service territory, but serves residents within our service territory, you are eligible for funding. However, these grants are primarily restricted to serve those clients within our service territory.

No. As a private foundation, we are restricted to only making awards to 501(c)(3) organizations. You can learn more about the IRS code for charitable organizations on the IRS website.

We make every attempt to complete the review process and issue notification within 45 days. How long must I wait to submit another application? There is no restriction on the number of applications an organization can make in a year, but since we are a smaller foundation, it is unlikely multiple grants will be awarded to the same organization in the same year.
