PositiveNRG, our corporate philanthropy program, enriches the communities we serve by supporting initiatives that address education, human welfare, the environment, and health and wellness. Learn more about positiveNRG here.

The mission of our giving programs, including NRG Gives and Reliant Gives, is to support causes that are important to our employees and communities. Through this crowd-sourced charitable giving program, employees nominate nonprofits, narrow the list of potential recipients down to three, and then the public at large votes for the organizations to receive up to a $100,000 donation. Since the programs began in 2016, nearly two million public votes were received, and the NRG Retail Charitable Foundation donated $840,000 to 26 charities in the communities that Reliant and NRG serve.
