We Put Our Energy Here
Through its many subsidiaries, including Florida City Gas, AGL Resources touches more than 4.5 million residents in 10 states. We are proud to have been part of the fabric of our communities for more than 150 years. We believe that part of our corporate responsibility is to give back to our communities, and our philanthropic focus is designed to make a meaningful impact in the community we serve.
Areas of Focus
To make the most meaningful impact in our communities, Florida City Gas focuses on these distinct areas of giving:
Energy Assistance: We support programs which primarily help low-income households and low-income senior citizens afford their natural gas energy consumption. These programs include weatherization projects and emergency energy assistance.
Education: With an emphasis in literacy, math and science, this support includes public secondary schools (K-12); public and private colleges and universities.
Environmental Stewardship: We support projects such as clean air, conservation, and greenspace.
Community Enrichment: We support programs specific to minority leadership, women leadership, arts and culture, business leadership and/or economic development.
AGL Resources Private Foundation
We are proud to be a partner in the communities we serve. We strive to maintain a keen sensitivity to issues affecting our communities and our business. We show our dedication and corporate citizenship through our various foundation grants, community outreach programs, and other corporate charitable giving programs. We realize that we cannot support every worthy cause in all our communities and make a meaningful impact. Therefore, most grants approved by the foundation are for organizations that already have historical partnerships with the foundation and are within our service territories – Georgia, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Tennessee, and Texas. Unsolicited grant requests are welcomed, but most are rarely approved by the foundation.

Florida City Gas Improves Access to Wildlife Sanctuary
A new access path to the creek that Turkey Creek Sanctuary is named for puts canoeists and kayakers in the best waters in Palm Bay, Florida.
The mulch-covered path and a small picnic pavilion were made possible through a $10,000 donation from Florida City Gas. The improvements were made by the Palm Bay Parks and Recreation.
“We determined that the park needed this improvement by working with the Friends of Turkey Creek and the Brevard Community Foundation,” says Charles Rawson, vice president and general manager, Florida City Gas. “This partnership is part of our commitment to the communities we serve.”
The creek access area appears to have once been an informal swimming hole. Canoeists and kayakers previously had to put in at another park that required an eight-mile roundtrip paddle, primarily in the sun, to reach the sanctuary, where Turkey Creek meanders among large trees.
