Siemens Energy Donates $250k Through Positive Energy Campaign

January 18, 2021 8:00 AM EST
  • Siemens Energy employees nominated local charitable organizations to have the opportunity to receive donations of up to $10k each
  • 122 organizations across 20 states were selected to receive a donation

ORLANDO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- On the occasion of the Martin Luther King holiday, the only federal holiday designated as a day of service, Siemens Energy is pleased to announce the winning charitable organizations of the company’s recently launched Positive Energy campaign. “On this national day of service, it’s important to recognize the value of serving in the places where we live and work,” said Steve Conner, president of Siemens Energy, Inc. “These organizations demonstrate service to their respective communities today and every day.”

Siemens Energy celebrated its recent spinoff from Siemens AG with a campaign to spread positive energy in the U.S. through donations to its employees’ favorite charities totaling $250,000 across 20 states. The nominated charities each created a one-minute video explaining their organization’s mission and how they would use a donation of up to $10,000 to continue serving their respective community. Each video was uploaded to a gallery, where members of the public could vote for their favorites by “liking” the videos.

A total of 122 charities were ultimately selected to receive donations ranging from $500 to $10,000 based on a combination of public “likes” and scores earned from a panel of judges. The complete list of winners can be found in the attached document.

Evelyn Sabina, program coordinator for $10,000 winner Dream It Do It Western New York (WNY) said “We can’t thank Siemens Energy enough for their continued support for Dream It Do It WNY. Through student mentoring, classroom visits, school tours, internships, teacher workshops and more, Siemens continues to be a driving force behind our mission: To encourage our talented youth to pursue STEM related careers in Advanced Manufacturing.”

Michael Richter, executive director for the Construction and Maintenance Education Foundation (CMEF) in La Porte, TX, another $10,000 winner, said “CMEF truly appreciates this generous donation from Siemens Energy. This donation will help us to continue to promote our effective and passionately supported Community Based Workforce Development, Outreach, and Craft Training programs.”

Apoorva Savanur, a member of the $10,000-winning Robbinsville FIRST Robotics Team 2590, based in New Jersey, said "Being selected as a grand prize winner for the Siemens Positive Energy Campaign means we are able to continue our STEM outreach both in our immediate community and beyond. The funds will enable us to create engineering kits to engage local children in STEM challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic. We will also be able to continue our global outreach initiative for children in Nairobi, Kenya."

As a newly independent company, Siemens Energy’s mission is to support its customers in transitioning to a more sustainable energy system based on the company’s innovative technologies and ability to turn ideas into reality. In support of this mission, the Positive Energy Campaign was aimed at providing donations to local charities that make a clear impact on their respective communities, especially in a year when the COVID-19 pandemic has created an increase in basic human needs across society.

“We know that many of the organizations our employees support are struggling due to the pandemic, and we are excited to be able to help all the charities that participated in our program,” said Conner. “Siemens Energy’s purpose is to energize society, and this campaign focused on helping difference makers throughout the U.S. turn their ideas into reality to build stronger, more sustainable neighborhoods and communities.”
