The ESP Charitable Foundation giving program is designed to respect the diversity of our community. We are actively involved in our community, partnering with local nonprofits to meet specific needs within the community.

Within our funding guidelines, we consider grant requests without regard to race, gender, disability, religion, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation. While the ESP Charitable Foundation generously funds many nonprofit organizations in our communities, it is impossible to fund every request received.


Through the ESP Charitable Foundation, we support organizations and programs that advance the funding priorities described under the “Types of Support” section below and that are located in a community with an ESP location.
