Community Impact

KCP&L is devoted to improving communities we serve with targeted donations, investments and employee volunteerism.

Employees packaging foodWe’re connected to this region through the energy we provide, but our commitment goes much further. As a local company headquartered here for more than 130 years, our approach is simple—a healthy company is dependent on a healthy community.

KCP&L employees volunteer nearly 20,000 hours each year to support the neighborhoods in which we live and work. Employees also supplement our corporate community investments with more than $1 million of their own money. 

It’s not just an obligation for us, it’s the right thing to do—and it’s one of the most rewarding parts of our jobs. Together with our community partners, we’re proud to make a meaningful difference in our area.
