TVA has long played an important role in fostering the social and economic well-being of the people it serves. Just as TVA supported the progress of regional communities into the mainstream of American prosperity in the 20th century, its corporate citizenship activities play an important role in improving the quality of life in communities today.
The employees of TVA are involved in many corporate philanthropy, public participation and volunteer activities. TVA Community Relations coordinates those activities as well as community investments and stakeholder outreach to help TVA strengthen and serve communities in the TVA region.

TVA may make contributions of cash, supplies, equipment or in-kind services.
Volunteers assist with community service projects.
TVA employees volunteer many hours of their personal time to help their favorite nonprofit causes. The Community Connections grant program is TVA’s way of recognizing and encouraging employees' service to the community. For every 50 hours of personal time an employee volunteers to an eligible cause, TVA will award a $250 grant to that organization. For every 100 hours, TVA will double the grant to $500.
