    Dayton Power and Light Awards $2.5 Million Community Grants in 2018

    DAYTON, Ohio - January  29, 2019 - The Dayton Power and Light Company  (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), awarded 107 Corporate and DP&L Foundation grants to support economic development and arts, workforce development, poverty reduction, and diversity and inclusion organizations in 2018 totaling $2.5 million.

    The 2018 grants included fourteen DP&L Foundation Power Grants which will make a long-lasting impact on the people and communities in the Dayton Region. The foundation introduced Signature Grants in 2013 to provide organizations with the opportunity to request funding for larger projects. Now called Power Grants, these strategic investments are aimed at helping to improve the quality of life, enhancing the sustainability of organizations, and engaging volunteerism in area partner organizations.

    "I am proud to share that the DP&L Foundation continues to be the largest corporate foundation in the Miami Valley, and every dollar stays local fostering an engaged, vibrant, welcoming region that is seen as a great place to live and work." said Director of Community and Social Responsibility Holly Wiggins. "Our grants support programs and capital improvements that create positive impacts in our communities, drive lasting economic growth, improve education, and provide essential services to the Dayton region."

    Since its founding in 1985, The Dayton Power and Light Company Foundation has awarded over $38 million which includes nearly $5 million in Power Grants to highly  regarded non-profit organizations that support our mission to improve lives.
