Power of Giving Program
The PSEG matching gift program is the company's way of supporting employee donations to the community and the organizations they support. This program is for PSEG employees and retirees only. Please visit http://www.easymatch.com/pseg for more information or contact the Corporate Responsibility Dept.
Educational Matching Gift Program
The Educational Matching Gift Program matches dollar-for-dollar, contributions made by employees, retirees, directors and retired directors to educational institutions that meet eligibility criteria.
The non-profit charitable contributions now matches, dollar-for-dollar, contributions up to $2,500 for permanent full time employees, and present and retired members of the Company's Board of Directors, to eligible 501© (3) organizations, fire and rescue organizations as well as veteran organizations. PSEG retirees' charitable contributions are still matched dollar-for-dollar up to $100.
PSEG Volunteer Grant Program
The PSEG Volunteer Grant Program is the company's way of recognizing, supporting, and encouraging the valuable contributions of our employees' volunteer efforts.
Through the program, employee can receive up to $1,000 annually in volunteer grants for their organizations, which include qualified 501© (3) organizations, youth sports groups, and veterans, fire and rescue organizations.
The program is available to all eligible employee volunteers, regardless of where they live or work or where the organization they serve is located. Employees no longer need to complete six months of volunteer service to an organization before applying.
PSEG teams are also eligible to receive a collective grant for the organization where they serve or perform community service.
The PSEG Volunteer Grant Program is designed to identify our employees as community leaders and volunteers, and to increase awareness of the company's support to the community.
Each year, PSEG recognizes employees' volunteer efforts by awarding grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to the qualified nonprofit organization where they volunteer.
Up to seventeen PSEG employees or employee teams are honored annually as winners of the company's Recognizing Excellence in Volunteerism (REV) awards.
Representatives of the organizations served by these employees attend the PSEG Recognition Celebration, where the award-winning volunteers are recognized in front of many of their peers and senior management.
Time after time, each organization that receives a contribution on behalf of a PSEG employee expresses appreciation not only for the monetary donation, but also for the valuable gift of our associates' time, spirit and dedication to helping others.
The PSEG Recognizing Excellence in Volunteerism program has now been expanded so that even more employees can participate. Volunteer activities no longer need to be concentrated in one of PSEG's main priority areas (community & environment, education and safety). The program is now open to all volunteer activities.
Through the newly implemented online application, employees may nominate themselves or a co-worker for the prestigious awards, or they may be nominated by the organization they serve. This year's recipients will be formally recognized at a ceremony in October, 2014. For additional information about the REV awards contact Roben Rasheed-Hernandez, at 973-430-8324.

Financial assistance during times of personal and family crisis…for employees, by employees
Take Heart…When a terminal or life threatening illness strikes you or your family, or Mother Nature substantially destroys your property, take heart, the PSEG Employee Crisis Fund is there to support you and your family in non-taxable dollars for emergency and basic living needs.
Have a Heart…The PSEG Employee Crisis Fund is funded by the PSEG Foundation and is administered by the Community Foundation of New Jersey. However, your tax deductible donation is needed to sustain the fund. Only PSEG regular, active part-time and full-time employees who are experiencing a financial hardship resulting from a catastrophic event or life-threatening illness or injury are eligible to apply.
- Incidents affecting an eligible employee or his/her immediate family member are eligible for consideration.
- Grants range between $500 and $2,500, with an average grant of $1,000. The objective of the fund is to provide a quick response to the PSEG employee during a crucial time when a personal catastrophe has occurred. The mission of the PSEG Crisis Fund is to assist the eligible PSEG employee and his/her family with swift financial assistance to help with emergency and basic living expenses in a time of need and flux and is not intended to make the incurred loss whole for the individual. In rare and extenuating circumstances, a grant no greater than $5,000 may be considered by the Grant Review Committee.
