Making Life Better Together Through Charitable Foundations

We want to be partners in making our communities 'better together'.  We believe that our vitality as a business depends on the health of the communities to which we deliver energy. Therefore, Columbia Gas of Ohio is invested in improving the quality of life, diversity and fullness of opportunity in the communities where our customers and employees live and work.

To support these goals Columbia Gas of Ohio provides grants to qualified charitable organizations that help support and fulfill these critical needs in the communities we serve:

  • Food, Clothing and Shelter
  • Jobs and Economic Development
  • Civic, Community and Safety Services
  • Critical Health and Medical Services
  • Environmental Sustainability

Eligible organizations must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. For grant consideration you must submit a current IRS Form W-9 Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. Failure to submit IRS Form W-9 will mean automatic rejection of your application.

Grant Application Process

Eligible organizations must complete a grant application for review and consideration. Requests are accepted year-round, and are reviewed on an ongoing basis. If your organization fits within our guidelines and provides a positive impact in our services area, you may wish to complete our Grant Application form.
