Electricity is the lifeblood of our economy and our way of life, and this vital fact drives our mission as energy transmission providers. However, there are many factors that contribute to great quality of life, which is why we believe that giving of ourselves to the communities we serve is just as important.

From the employees who maintain our transmission assets and answer calls from our customers, to our management team and the individuals who serve on our Board of Directors, the ITC team is committed to the communities and people we serve. That commitment can be seen throughout the company's footprint, both inside and outside the workplace.

Our operating philosophy in the workplace shows a deep respect for our environment, and we make environmental stewardship a core part of our planning and day-to-day decision-making processes.

Through local government and community relations efforts, we make donations that have an impact, supporting communities with sponsorships and donations. Whether protecting the habitat of a native species or helping a town recover from a natural disaster, we are committed to strong corporate citizenship in the communities we serve.

Charitable Giving Program

The ITC charitable giving program emphasizes contributions that represent the keys to a strong quality of life – investing in our education system, our environment, economically vulnerable families, and the health and wellness of every member of our community.

A sense of partnership is the driving force behind our commitment to support the communities we serve and the organizations that serve them. It's a commitment that will continue through the years ahead.
