Alliant Energy has donated $42,500 to local United Way organizations in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This immediate assistance is part of our continued commitment to helping communities during this health crisis.
The aid will directly benefit some of the United Way organizations that are assisting with emergency relief efforts in communities that we serve in Iowa and Wisconsin.
“We have an ongoing commitment to the communities that we serve. We are demonstrating this commitment by acting quickly and providing immediate support to the United Way organizations that will assist our customers and the communities,” said Julie Bauer, Executive Director of the Alliant Energy Foundation. “We are continuing to help minimize the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.”
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the company’s support is addressing increasing needs and benefiting five United Way organizations, including:
- United Way of Dane County (Wisconsin)
- United Way of East Central Iowa (Iowa)
- United Way Blackhawk Region (Wisconsin)
- United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States (Iowa)
- United Way of Sheboygan County (Wisconsin)
Last week, the company donated $100,000 to the coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts in Iowa and Wisconsin through its foundation. That support is helping organizations such as six Feeding America Food Banks, the American Red Cross and other emergency relief services in Iowa and Wisconsin to meet the current needs.
We are also encouraging current and retired employees to donate to local relief efforts and matching those gifts.
We will continue to work with community partners and monitor new information from government officials to evaluate community needs and use that info as a guide to future gifts.
In addition, we support the Hometown Care Energy Fund in Iowa and Wisconsin. This fund is supported annually with funds from Alliant Energy and voluntary contributions from customers to assist customers that need financial help.
