Sempra Foundation’s support of employee-selected charities reaches nearly $7 million in 2023

Sempra’s vision to deliver energy with purpose comes in many forms — in 2023, the vision was delivered with millions of dollars in donations and tens of thousands of hours in volunteer time, including cleaning beaches, renovating school buildings and organizing schoolwork for teachers. At Sempra, to deliver energy with purpose means to invest in the communities we serve in multiple ways.

The charitable work of Sempra’s dedicated employees is supported by the Sempra Foundation

 — a private foundation funded solely by Sempra — with a mission to build a more equitable and vibrant future for all. To that end, the Sempra Foundation funds the internal “My Energy” program where employees may request their charitable donations be matched by the Foundation. In addition, employees who volunteer with a nonprofit can request that their volunteer hours be matched with a monetary donation.

“The Sempra Foundation is proud to champion people by supporting the causes that matter most to them,” Lisa Larroque Alexander, chair of the Sempra Foundation’s board of directors, said. “This is the perfect example of purpose-driven work.”

Here’s a snapshot of the charitable efforts of Sempra’s employees and the Sempra Foundation:
