Community Giving Programs

Habitat builders

It’s about building strong communities.

You care about strengthening your community. So do we. Alliant Energy and the Alliant Energy Foundation have a long history of partnering with communities to make things better.
In 2021, we made strategic updates to how we support charities in the communities Alliant Energy serves. These changes helped us maximize Foundation resources, which come from Alliant Energy shareowners, to make the greatest impact in our communities.
