Community Support during the COVID-19 crisis

small business 250x250-01

In late May, NorthWestern Energy announced another $100,000 in aid to assist the communities we serve working to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing our aid to the crisis recovery efforts to $400,000. This is in addition to NorthWestern Energy’s annual charitable donations, economic development, local sponsorships and employee match programs, which were more than $2 million in 2019. 

Small businesses are the backbone of all communities, and at NorthWestern Energy, we believe the economic stability they provide to all of us is valuable to protect. Helping small businesses survive this pandemic is extremely important and together we can all help.

Community Works

NorthWestern Energy is a community within many communities. We are close to 1,600 individuals working collectively to build stronger communities in Montana, Nebraska and South Dakota through the production, generation and delivery of electricity and natural gas.

Our goal is to be a leading corporate citizen in each of the diverse communities we serve. In 2019, our Community Works Fund contributed more than $2.1 million in economic development, charitable donations and community sponsorships. We are invested fully in the community spirit that connects us in common purpose.
