PGE Foundation is one of the pillars of PGE's social involvement.
Its objective is to build involvement amongst all stakeholder groups. Since 2011, we have been supporting the development of local communities by providing support in the form of grants and social programmes.
In its philanthropic activities in 2016, the Foundation provided over PLN 3 million in donations intended for medical coverage, health care, support for the poorest, science and learning as well as the culture and protection of national heritage. The Foundation is also a co-organiser of PGE's employee volunteering programme "Pomagamy." In 2016, it ran the programme's third edition. Overall in three editions, about 300 employees participated in projects to help others.

Selected effects of the programme
In addition, PGE Foundation carries out its own social programmes such as:
- "Energy of Innovation" - a competition for young scientists who get an opportunity for business cooperation with PGE Group. Innovative solutions from PGE Group's business areas can be submitted to this competition.
- "Energetic Backpack" – a campaign started over a decade ago by energy professionals in Łódź. In 2015, the campaign involved: PGE Foundation, PGE Dystrybucja S.A., PGE EJ 1 sp. z o.o., PGE GiEK S.A. and PGE Systemy S.A. First-graders from families suffering hardship, selected by local social assistance centres, receive backpacks with school supplies. In 2015-2016, the Foundation and PGE Group companies provided over 6 000 backpacks in 9 voivodships.
Additionally, there is a CCI procedure in place at PGE Group, which sets out PGE Group's key community involvement areas.
