Wednesday, June 12th, 2024

Gas South, the leading retail natural gas provider of the Southeast has announced the six finalists for its 2024 Impact Investment Awards.

The Impact Investment awards allow nonprofits that focus on childhood basic needs, education or health to apply for funding from Gas South. Winners are selected by Gas South customers and members of the community via online voting with the two top recipients selected earning $100k each to further their mission.

Six finalists were chosen out of more than 250 applications, a record-breaking amount from previous years.

“We’re excited to offer the annual Impact Investment Awards in addition to giving back 5% of our profits to the needs of kids and families,” said Carley Stephens, Gas South’s Manager of Community Affairs. “We know this investment will help make significant community impacts in Atlanta Metro and beyond. However, choosing a nonprofit to vote for will be a tough choice as they all do such incredible work for youth in our communities. Gas South invites the public to participate in a vote on their website to select two of the following organizations from these categories:

 Education

  • ○  RE:Imagine Atlanta, Inc. – Trains, equips and inspires historically underserved youth between the ages of 11 and 24 to build careers in creative and digital media through job placement and activities that bridge the gap to employment as a professional.

  • ○  Hope for Youth, Inc. (HYPE) – Empowers middle and high school girls of color with technology skills and prepares them to become future leaders through intentional exploration, education and empowerment.

Before voting opens on June 25th, Gas South will highlight each organization’s mission on social media and their website. More than 15,000 people voted in 2023.

“It’s exciting to see our customers and the community join us in our effort to serve others, as they learn more about our impact award finalists,” said Kevin Greiner, president and CEO of

Gas South. “Our purpose is to Be A Fuel For Good, and we’re thrilled to continue that inspiring work through the two selected organizations.”
