Community Champions

Supporting Our Customers

At Constellation, we believe in giving back to the community—and know that a few dollars can go a long way. Through our Community Champions program, our customers can apply for small grants (up to $500) for causes that are important to their communities. Extra consideration will be given to those requests where the project, organization, or initiative focuses on education, environment, or youth. Since its inception, we have awarded nearly 2,500 community projects across 28 states where we do business.

Some examples of causes supported through the program include:

  • Community tree planting
  • Mentoring program
  • Library/recreation center makeover
  • Youth sports
