Employee Giving Program
FPL employees have a strong tradition and history of supporting United Way and other nonprofits in their community. Through the company’s annual employee giving campaign, employees make pledges through payroll deductions and special event fundraising. Since 2000, NextEra Energy and its employees have donated more than $44 million to help people and build stronger communities.
Educational Matching Gifts
NextEra Energy provides a dollar-for-dollar match of employee gifts to eligible high schools, colleges and universities. Since 2003, the NextEra Energy Foundation has provided 2600 matches, totaling $2.3 million.
Race for the Cure
In 2014, FPL brought close to 1,500 employees, friends and family members to participate in the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure in both West Palm Beach and Miami. With approximately 900 involved in West Palm Beach alone, Team FPL was one of the largest participating teams.
Over the years, FPL has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help people with breast cancer and to find a cure. As a major sponsor of these events, FPL plans to contribute $50,000 in West Palm Beach, $20,000 in Miami and $15,000 in Fort Myers to offset race expenses and to help Komen's mission. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds generated by these events in which Team FPL participates will stay locally to help those facing the challenges of breast cancer. The remaining income funds research for a cure.
