Corporate and Regional Donations are monetary grants, sponsorships or in-kind contributions provided by BC Hydro to registered charities or not-for-profit organizations to support cultural, social and economic well-being in communities around the province of British Columbia.

**For fiscal 2008 and 2009, the People and Leadership funding and Community Investment funding areas are reported together. After fiscal 2009, the funding area is called Community Leadership.

The drop in Education funding between fiscal 2008 and fiscal 2009 is due to moving one donation from Education to People and Leadership.

For fiscal 2009 donation initiatives were planned to have a stronger customer focus that included marketing and leveraging opportunities similar to sponsorships.

For fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2011 donation initiatives were planned to have a stronger alignment for energy conservation action in B.C.
