About the Foundation


Who we are

The Vectren Foundation strives to become a community catalyst in our communities - leveraging everyday opportunities to achieve extraordinary outcomes. The Foundation provides funding for nearly 400 nonprofit organizations throughout its service territory. Through Vectren's support, our local communities are able to pursue initiatives that increase the quality of life for their residents, help children gain access to quality education programs, give adults workforce training that will give them access to jobs with a fair living wage, and ensure our communities are safe and green both now and in the future.

Vectren employees share in the commitment to community by volunteering their time, talents and treasure. Whether it is by serving on a nonprofit board, choosing to contribute personal funding to a local charity or spending their time volunteering at a local agency, Vectren employees are community-minded and highly engaged contributing nearly 35,000 hours annually.

The Vectren Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization funded by Vectren shareholders and governed by a board of directors.
