AEP Ohio Contributions

Dear Friends,

At AEP Ohio, our commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond our mission to provide safe, reliable and affordable electricity. We are dedicated to investing in the well-being of our neighbors and empowering our employees to give back to the communities they love.

To play an active role in our service territory, our employees donated both time and money to help our neighbors in need. In 2017, our collective efforts contributed more than $1.1 million to local organizations that support everything from housing and hunger to economic development and the environment. AEP Ohio and its employees generated more than $130,000 to support United Way campaigns in the communities it serves across Ohio.

We also continued our tradition of awarding grants from the American Electric Power Foundation with total contributions exceeding $8 million. Additionally, the AEP Ohio Foundation contributed more than $575,000.

We’re pleased to share the following report that highlights how AEP Ohio and its employees gave back to the communities in which they live and work. I’m proud of the good we have accomplished together and we’re thankful for the privilege to work alongside you today as we light the way for a brighter tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Julie Sloat
President and Chief Operating Officer
AEP Ohio
