Supporting tomorrow's


By helping young people explore science, technology, engineering and math, our partnerships with organizations are sparking lifelong learning.

We believe in the power of education to create a lifetime of opportunity. That's why we support a variety of educational institutions to help students learn new ways of thinking and foster innovation that will grow for years to come.

A few examples of collaborative partnerships:

  • Through a Pacific Power Foundation grant, three first-generation engineering students from Pacific Power communities are able to attend Oregon Tech in Klamath Falls, Oregon. 
  • In Bend, Oregon, the High Desert Museum offers free programs for kids to engage in hands-on science. The Energy and the Environment exhibit, funded in part by grants from our foundation, inspired one student to say: “I learned so much about energy and solar panels. You convinced me to want to be an engineer and build new stuff.”
  • The River Exchange in Dunsmuir, California, receives support from the Pacific Power Foundation for its environmental education curriculum. With a focus on watershed stewardship awareness, the project brings together experts from a range of environmental and scientific disciplines.
  • The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation supports first-generation college students at University of Utah and its ACCESS program for women in STEM
  • With help from the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, students and citizens across Wyoming benefit from University of Wyoming Foundation scholarships, art museum education and community outreach programs.
