Our Values

Across all our contributions and actions, and alongside Sempra, we are committed to advancing our values: do the right thing, champion people and shape the future.

Our Philosophy

Our benefactor, Sempra, is focused on delivering energy with purpose. Founded by Sempra in 2007, Sempra Foundation has long been focused on investing our energy and resources into efforts that make a real difference for people when they need it most.

We begin with championing our own people. We encourage community engagement by supporting the 20,000+ employees who work for Sempra and its operating companies, helping them to deliver their energy with purpose in their communities. We do this by matching employee contributions of time and money to any eligible 501(c)(3) charitable organization they choose to support.

We also dedicate ourselves to doing the right thing, and as such, we’re exploring the issue of energy access. We believe that clean, affordable energy should be available to everyone because it is foundational to economic growth and prosperity. We want to understand energy poverty at a deeper level and determine how we can help shape a vibrant future for all.

Last, we have a long history of investing in relief efforts when disasters strike — including wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes and events like the global pandemic still underway — and we’ll continue to support people and communities in need.
