We are passionate about giving back to the communities we serve

NorthWestern Energy strives to be a good citizen of the communities we serve, and we encourage employees to do the same.

In Your Community

As members of the communities we serve, NorthWestern Energy is passionate about giving back.

In 2020, we gave $1.7 million in charitable donations and sponsorships, economic development opportunities, scholarships and professional association dues across our territory. We gave an additional $400,000 in COVID-19 relief funds. A portion of these funds were donated to local COVID-19 relief efforts across our service territories. The remaining money went to hundreds of small businesses that were crippled by the pandemic.

How Can We Help Your Organization?

Our Community Fund provides support for qualified 501(c)(3) and 170(c)(2) non-profit organizations that directly serve our communities. Do you have a project that needs volunteers? Our employees are always looking for opportunities to volunteer their time to strengthen our communities.
