Corporate Sponsorships and Memberships

 

CPS Energy has a strong tradition of community involvement, working to advance the sustainability and prosperity of the San Antonio region, as well as improving the community we serve.

In serving the Greater San Antonio area, it is essential that we complement our programs and services with community-based partnerships that promote specific business objectives.

A CPS Energy sponsorship or membership must support an organization or event that advances the interests of CPS Energy and its customers and stakeholders.

CPS Energy will only sponsor organizations that have a proven track record in addressing key community needs and that can deliver measurable results for sustainable improvements in the communities in which we serve and operate our business.

  • Programs to improve the quality of our environment; promote environmental education, conservation and preservation; or support the development of cleaner sources of energy.
  • Community development and civic engagement initiatives, particularly those programs that have senior management involvement.
  • Education programs that promote math, science, engineering, and technology; improve workforce skills; or encourage individual development through scholarships, mentoring, and internships.
