Southern California Gas Co. is soliciting applications for its Environmental Champions Initiative, in which $500,000 will be doled out to nonprofit organizations with programs dedicated to cleaner air, energy and water conservation.

SoCalGas will award one-year grants in the amounts of $10,000, $15,000, $20,000 and $25,000 to nonprofit groups in 12 counties it serves, including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura.


In order to be considered to receive a grant, programs need to:

  • address clean air, energy and/or water conservation issues
  • support low-income communities of color with limited resources
  • impact multiple communities or the region as a whole
  • be easily replicated in other areas
  • have other partial funding
  • minimize administrative costs
  • have measurable outcomes within 12 months
  • involve large groups of diverse volunteers
  • have significant outreach opportunities

Last year, SoCalGas awarded 37 grants to nonprofit organizations across its service territory.

“Those groups focused on everything from harvesting rainwater at a community garden to providing green space to neighborhoods to making areas more accessible by bicycles and foot traffic,” according to the utility.

Nonprofit organizations need to submit their applications by 5 p.m. on Aug. 8. Guidelines and the link to the online application are available at:

Applicants will receive a confirmation email once the application is submitted. Organizations receiving grants will be notified by Nov. 14.
