TXU Energy named Corporation of the Year for charitable contributions


The Texas Trees Foundation nominated TXU Energy for the Center for Nonprofit Management's Corporation of the Year award.

TXU Energy was named the Center for Nonprofit Management’s Corporation of the Year in recognition of the company’s philanthropy, leadership and volunteerism.

The Center for Nonprofit Management on Thursday named TXU Energy the corporation of the year for its level of corporate citizenship and for maintaining socially responsible partnerships.

To earn the recognition, the organization said a company must “have invested in high impact and innovative projects/partnerships with nonprofits; engaged their employees in volunteerism and philanthropy; and raised awareness of critical issues important to improving the quality of life for North Texas citizens.”

The Texas Trees Foundation nominated TXU Energy for the recognition.

TXU Energy supports “our communities by providing reliable energy, as well as millions of dollars a year in philanthropy, leadership and volunteerism,” the foundation said.

Through its Committed to Community Growth program, TXU Energy helps the Texas Trees Foundation manage the TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm and Education Center, the largest known urban tree farm in the country. The company also has planted nearly 200,000 trees across the state through the program.

“I’m incredibly proud of this recognition because it highlights the contributions of our people,” said Jim Burke, president and CEO of TXU Energy. “Money is always needed, but just as important are the hands and hard work that our people voluntarily contribute to the communities we serve and the communities where we all live and work.”

The Center for Nonprofit Management helps nonprofit organization access and leverage expertise in staff development and overall management.
