Committed to Our Communities

Our purpose is to create a meaningful energy future together. Through IGS Impact, our community investment program, we focus our giving in three main areas. These include causes that help individuals and communities reduce their energy-related impact on the planet; causes that stimulate social entrepreneurship; and causes that matter to our employees.

Operation Warm

Keeping families warm is key to our business as a natural gas supplier, which is why it made sense for us to partner with Operation Warm, a nonprofit that provides brand-new coats to children in need. Doing so helps to boost self-esteem and promote brighter futures.

Cristo Rey

We want to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs and conscious business leaders, which is why we partner with Cristo Rey Columbus High School's professional work-study program. We're providing real work experience to local high school students who come from economically diverse neighborhoods.

Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement's programs use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. We're proud to support this national organization in their efforts to help students take control of their futures and change "I can't" to "I can."

i. c. stars

Providing equal opportunities to develop talent is why it makes sense to partner with i.c. stars, a workforce and leadership development program focused on training low-income individuals for IT careers. We serve as a program mentor and sponsor, and even hire graduates.
