Giving back to communities and volunteerism are an integral part of Entergy's mission. The company has a long legacy of commitment to creating and sustaining strong, healthy, and vibrant communities. Collectively, shareholders donate nearly $18 million to more than 2,000 organizations with a focus on education and workforce development, poverty solutions, community enrichment, environmental improvement, healthy families, arts and culture, and disaster relief. 

Entergy employees dedicate more than 100,000 volunteer hours every year. In 2018, they contributed 112,000 hours of service, translating into a $3.5 million economic impact to communities. This year, Entergy aims to double its impact by reaching 200,000 volunteer hours.

From contributing to almost 10,000 permanent jobs to Entergy’s service area to planting more than 50,000 trees and raising $2.9 million in employee, customer, and shareholder contributions to help our most vulnerable customers pay their utility bills, Entergy’s volunteerism and charitable giving has allowed the company to power life in the places that it calls home. 

The Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame documents the living history of corporate philanthropy and social responsibility. 

Established in 2019 for the 20th Annual Citizens Awards, the Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame identifies and commemorates companies and their leaders, employees, and cross-sector partners that have made extraordinary contributions to the betterment of society and brought about a new era where purpose is the foundation for progress.

The Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame is the world’s leading repository of the business community’s social, environmental, and philanthropic investments and impacts. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is honored to induct six companies into the Hall of Fame’s inaugural year.
