Community Investment

At Alton Natural Gas Storage we support non-profit organizations, projects and initiatives that help build and enhance the community.

We look to create shared value through mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations concentrating on our three core areas: Healthy and Safe Communities, Bright Futures and Environmental Champions. View our donations policy.
