Twice a year, the Jordan Cove-PCGP Grant Program awards grants of up to $5,000 to organizations that provide needed community services in our five core funding areas:

Giving back to the communities where we live and work, including areas where we operate facilities and have established offices, is important to creating a thriving community environment. We fund projects that contribute to approved community initiatives and in turn, contribute to the well-being of our neighbors and communities.

Environmental protection and enhancement are critical to the long-term sustainability of our quality of life. Your project should contribute to environmental initiatives that foster and create positive impacts to our natural surroundings.

Arts and culture play a critical role in creating a vital community. Your project should contribute to qualified local programs that benefit and support various arts and culture initiatives throughout our communities.

Our communities include many families with children of various ages. Your project should support the safety and well-being of children, families and education.

Encouraging the good health and well-being of our community neighbors is important to us all. Your project should contribute to various health initiatives aimed at promoting good health and overall well-being.
