CMC Awarded Community Impact Award from Dominion Energy
CLEVELAND — Dominion Energy has presented $110,000 in grants to 15 Ohio community organizations in its 24th annual Community Impact Award competition, co-sponsored with Cleveland Magazine.
A panel of community judges chose the winners from among more than 50 entries, submitted by organizations throughout the region. The awards recognize non-profit organizations that make Ohio communities better places to live, learn, work and play. The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm, funds the Community Impact Award grants. The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation is dedicated to the economic, physical and social health of the communities the company serves.
“As we have come to expect, this year’s Community Impact Award honorees devised, developed and delivered a wide range of ambitious, innovative and unique projects,” said Jim Eck, vice president and general manager, Ohio and West Virginia Distribution. “These projects demonstrate the major role our region’s non-profit and economic development agencies play in improving their local communities.
Since 1996, Dominion Energy and its predecessors have distributed more than $1.9 million in Community Impact Awards to Ohio organizations.
The Children’s Museum of Cleveland received $10,000 for its Museum for All program, which provides discounted tickets to lower-income families. The discounted tickets, available to families who show proof of receiving federal assistance, have helped increase attendance, while making the museum experience available to children who otherwise would not have been able to afford it.
