Mott Electric GP is very involved in local communities. In addition to our consistent contribution to local schools and sports teams, our staff has created a unique program to benefit charities that fall outside mainstream programs.
Since 1998, Mott Electric GP has promoted it's internal "Day of Giving" when the office staff, foremen and field electricians donate at least an hour of their wages on the first Friday of every December. Mott Electric GP then matches the total raised plus the amount of any tax benefit. The amount raised in 2016 was over $178,000, bringing our grand total to over $903,000.

Internationally, we sponsor, a young girl in Kakamega, Kenya. With our support, she can go to school and create a better life for herself and those around her.
