Putting energy behind communities
At Spire, we invest our time and resources in the organizations and initiatives that make life better for everyone. In 2019, we invested nearly $5 million to advance the communities we serve--in Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas and Wyoming.
Through generous employee gifts matched by Spire, we came together to give nearly $1.3 million to United Way in support of programs and services in our hometowns. This commitment to giving back and caring for the world around us landed us on Newsweek Magazine's 2020 "The Good List".
With a passion for serving others ingrained in who we are, the companywide initiative we call "Day for Good" continues to grow, with 2,000 employees volunteering at organizations they're passionate about in FY19, a 25 percent increase from the previous year.
We once again rallied to enrich lives throughout our communities, surpassing our annual United Way campaign fundraising goal.
When customers added $1 to their monthly bill, we matched a percentage of those dollars, raising $1.5 million last year to help thousands of low-income families stay warm through our DollarHelp program.
We live and work in the communities we serve, so through our matching gifts program, we matched the time and dollars employees gave to the organizations they care about most.
In the third year of our formalized Corporate Social Responsibility program, we helped advance health and human services, civic and community development, education, environmental sustainability and disaster relief—our five key focus areas.

At Spire, we believe in a world where energy champions people, enriching their lives and advancing their communities. Spire Serves, our corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, makes that idea a reality by supporting organizations that fuel stronger, more vibrant communities for our businesses, families, partners and neighbors.
