Communities received $12.1M from Alliant Energy in 2022

Alliant Energy and the company’s charitable foundation, along with the company’s employees and retirees, collectively contributed $12.1 million and volunteered over 70,000 hours in 2022, according to a news release.

Through its foundation giving and the employees’ and retirees’ commitment to volunteering, Alliant Energy focused funding and volunteering in four areas: community safety and engagement, environmental stewardship, workforce readiness, and hunger and housing.

Included among the programs the Alliant Energy donations impacted were:

  • Child ID kits were provided to all 975,000 school-aged children in Wisconsin last year;
  • A successful start in its intent to plant 1 million trees by the end of 2030, Alliant Energy’s One Million Trees initiative led to nearly 124,000 trees being planted in Iowa and Wisconsin; and
  • A partnership with the University of Wisconsin–Platteville on the college’s newly opened Sesquicentennial Hall with the Alliant Energy Open Prototyping Space, a tinkering space that allows students and community members to transform ideas into reality.
