Our Communities

When we put our energy behind our communities, we all thrive.

As a leader in our communities, we believe energy makes things happen. That’s why we invest our time and resources in the organizations and initiatives that make life better for everyone.

In 2016, we invested nearly $5 million to advance the communities we serve. Through generous employee gifts augmented by Spire, we came together to give nearly $1.3 million to United Way in support of programs and services in our hometowns.

Spire Serves

Spire's mission is our promise to the communities we serve. A promise to answer every challenge, advance every community and enrich every life through the strength of our energy. Spire Serves, one part of our greater Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) platform, delivers on that promise by working with the organizations that serve our communities.

Our Focus

Our goal is to use our energy in ways that reflect who we are as a company and how we hope to carry out our mission. So we focus that energy on nonprofit organizations that serve the communities where our customers and employees live and work from Alabama to Missouri, to Mississippi and beyond. 

Our Impact

Spire Serves takes a thoughtful approach to giving back, using our resources where we know we can have the greatest impact. That's why we're dedicated to supporting health and human services, civic and community development, as well as education and the environment.

Industry leadership

One of the best ways to grow our communities is to have an active voice in the energy industry. Through our leadership positions in the American Gas Association and Southern Gas Association, we bring our best thinking to what the future holds for our industry.

Community leadership

For us, community service is a priority. Many of our employees actively engage in these efforts through leadership positions in local organizations ranging from Chambers of Commerce and economic development authorities to workplace training initiatives in partnership with local technical colleges.

Sustainability

Our core business of natural gas is key to our nation’s sustainable energy future. Through our utility businesses, we support energy efficiency education for homeowners and businesses alike to make the best use of our resources.
