NorthWestern Energy wants to make the communities it serves better places to live, work and prosper. That's why we're proud to donate to a wide range of worthy causes. We encourage qualified nonprofit organizations that operate within our service territory to apply for donations through our NorthWestern Energy Charitable Giving program. Our local committees review requests year-round and determine funding.

Qualified nonprofit organizations must submit an application or written request with proof of tax exemption under Section 501(c)(3) or Section 170(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code to be eligible for consideration.
