MOHAVE COUNTY - UniSource directs its annual community investments to programs and services that have the greatest impact and measurable results for improving childhood education,

protecting and conserving the environment, and meeting the basic needs of limited-income and underserved residents. Like all of UniSource’s philanthropic contributions, the grants are funded from corporate resources, not customers’ rates.

“We’ve worked to identify and fund the most effective efforts to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve,” said David G. Hutchens, UniSource’s President and CEO. “This year’s Community Impact Grants will help worthwhile organizations provide food, shelter, clothing and counseling for our most vulnerable residents, educate youth in math and science and protect our environment.”
