Customer and Community Relations

By proactively engaging the communities we serve, we enhance our ability to be an effective, profitable and trusted partner while maximizing our business value. Our commitment to strengthening communities is reflected in our civic engagement through partnerships, innovative programs, volunteerism and generous giving. Last year, these contributions totaled more than $2.7 million and over 6,300 volunteer hours —the equivalent of more than 158 full-time work hours.

  • Passionate Employees: Through our corporate employee volunteer program, hundreds of our employees give their time and energy to participate in community events throughout the year, supporting community efforts that allow residents to live fuller and more rewarding lives. From local beach cleanups to restoring community centers, these opportunities provide employees the chance to create change in fundamental ways.
  • Philanthropy: Our spirit of giving back is evident in our corporate contributions, dedicating financial and in-kind donations and other resources to bring about positive change.
  • Community Relations: Many of our senior executives lend their expertise as board members on local nonprofit organizations. This allows them a first-hand glimpse into the needs of the many communities in our service territory and gives us the ability to determine how to respond most effectively.
  • Community Education: In partnership with those who share our hopes of building a promising future for today’s youth through lifelong education, NJR aims to foster learning, stimulate motivation and open a world of opportunities beyond school years. Through our Energy for Education Programs, we help prepare today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders by investing in various programs that inspire young people to achieve their goals.

By embracing diversity in these opportunities, we are helping build an inclusive environment for the benefit of everyone. Learn more about how we are making a difference in our communities.
