The MidAmerican Energy Foundation provides financial support to qualified charitable organizations that support MidAmerican Energy’s customers and the communities within its service area. The Foundation is funded by MidAmerican shareholders, and financial giving does not impact customer bills.

  • Community Enhancement – Public spaces where people can learn, grow and connect builds strong communities.
  • Arts and Culture – Celebrating the arts and heritage of all customers helps create unique communities.
  • Environmental Respect – The commitment to deliver clean, safe, reliable and affordable energy aligns with other green initiatives the Foundation supports across MidAmerican's service area.
