Community Involvement

Giving Back to Move Forward

At Entergy Arkansas, our goal is to improve the quality of life in communities we serve. One way we do this is through strategic investments in education, low income and poverty initiatives, environmental programs, and diversity and inclusion programs. In 2019 we contributed $2,047,900 to local community events, nonprofits and causes right here in Arkansas. Additionally, our employees volunteer for hundreds of local organizations by serving on boards, providing professional guidance and rolling up their sleeves to do whatever needs doing. In 2019, Entergy employees in Arkansas spent 23,027 hours doing volunteer work with a value of $585,577.

Companywide, the trend is similar. About a quarter of all employees (3,975) volunteered in 2019, logging 114,977 hours of volunteer service with a value of $3.7 million.
