Community Connectors, Entergy's volunteer program, is yet another way that Entergy helps non-profits throughout our area of operations. Through Community Connectors, Entergy recruits our employees and retirees to serve as volunteers in the communities where they work and live…but that’s not all. The program also recognizes and encourages the volunteers’ efforts by providing grants they can designate to the eligible non-profits of their choice. For every 20 volunteer hours, each employee or retiree earns a $250 grant up to an annual limit of $750.
- all full and part-time employees
