About Our Foundation
The Piedmont Natural Gas Foundation was formed in 2004 to support nonprofit organizations in communities throughout our service territory. Since its beginning, the Foundation has invested more than $9 million in the communities we serve.
As a part of Duke Energy, Piedmont’s commitment to the community remains unchanged. As of Jan. 1, 2017, the Piedmont Foundation will combine with the Duke Energy Foundation. Together, the organizations will address the needs of our communities by continuing to invest time and resources to improve the quality of life for our customers and neighbors.
Grant applications will open Jan. 1, 2017. Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to visit our website starting Jan. 1 to apply for grants.

Our Giving Guidelines
Piedmont Natural Gas and Duke Energy are committed to building strong, vibrant communities, and the combined organization will continue to fund nonprofit organizations which reflect the companies’ core values.
Piedmont will evaluate and adjust our existing strategies in the months ahead to better align the two organizations’ giving guidelines.
