Committed to Our Communities!

At AEP Energy, we strive to do the right thing every time for our customers, each other and our future. Being involved with our communities is a big part of reaching such a lofty goal. We are proud to do that by donating time and resources to local charities and partnering with organizations throughout our community.

Charities and Volunteering

AEP Energy recognizes the impact giving back has on the people who live and work in our neighborhoods. We take the opportunity to contribute funds, as well as our resources and energy to help make our community a better place.

Brian Muha Memorial Foundation – AEP Energy has been proud to have partnered with Oakland Nurseries in central Ohio.  As part of that partnership, with every enrollment we received while in stores, AEP Energy donated a portion to the Brian Muha Memorial Foundation.

Flying Horse Farms – Fifty employees spent a day deep cleaning and helping Flying Horse Farms, a medical specialty camp that provides free transformative experiences for children with serious illnesses, prepare for winter.

Holiday Toy Drive – Each December, the AEP family donates toys to an annual toy drive. Our employees take it upon themselves to purchase everything we contribute.

Military and Veterans Care Kits – Another way AEP Energy employees have given back is by donating much needed supplies to our military abroad and homeless veterans.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Half Marathon – In 2019, a team of AEP Energy employees ran in the Columbus Half Marathon, with contributions going to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for lifesaving research and care.

Stonewall Columbus Pride Parade – As a leader in diversity and inclusion, employees from all Columbus-area American Electric Power (AEP) companies participate in the Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival and Parade each year.

United Way – AEP and AEP Energy partner with the United Way, and many employees give to this organization on a regular basis.

County Fairs – AEP Energy Small Business Solutions has proudly sponsored 4-H projects at local county fairs.

Columbus Clippers – Take me out to the ballgame! From Dime-a-Dog night to the All-You-Can-Eat Seats, there’s always something exciting happening at Huntington Park when the Columbus Clippers are in town.

Columbus Crew – There’s nothing quite like experiencing Matchday with the Columbus Crew! Professional soccer at its finest, now housed in their beautiful new downtown stadium since 2021.

Ohio State Athletics – Columbus doesn’t get much better than on a Saturday afternoon in Autumn when the Buckeyes are playing football in Ohio Stadium. Home of the best fans in the land, Ohio State Athletics has something to offer everyone.
