The United Illuminating Company and its affiliated foundation announced that they have awarded more than $620,000 to more than 135 nonprofits since the beginning of 2015.
“At UI, supporting our community matters. It matters because this is our home. It’s where our employees live. It’s where we work,” said John J. Prete, president of the Connecticut and Massachusetts operations for Avangrid Networks. The nonprofits, receiving support, all operate within the 17 communities UI serves. The AVANGRID Foundation coordinates and funds environmental, educational and social responsibility programs for AVANGRID companies. In 2016, more than $680,000 will be donated to communities in Connecticut. Of that amount, $400,000 is designated for communities in UI’s service area.
