Through its Volunteer Program, the Alliant Energy Foundation recognizes and rewards personal involvement by current employees and retirees of Alliant Energy and its family of companies.
Program participants who give their own time to support a wide array of causes and events in their communities are eligible to provide grants of up to $400 annually to eligible charitable organizations of their choosing.
Grants are awarded once per year for as few as 50 hours of volunteer work per 12-month period.
In 2011, employees and retirees of Alliant Energy were awarded $122,900 in recognition of their 89,264 volunteer hours.
The Points of Light Foundation places a value of $20.85 on each volunteer hour. This equates to a financial impact of more than $1.86 million going back into our communities through the volunteer service of our employees and retirees.
