Foundation In-kind Donations

In-kind Donations

We donate used equipment and furniture when available

Xcel Energy contributed $217,118 to nonprofit entities and charities through in-kind donations in 2010. These donations ranged from used computer equipment, projectors and monitors to office space, furniture and vehicle maintenance.

On behalf of the Foundation, Dave Pearson, community relations manager based in Mankato, Minn., presented the keys and title of a retired Xcel Energy van to the Mankato Area youth Baseball Association.

Xcel Energy donated land adjacent to its former customer office in Hobbs, N.M., to the Boys & Girls Club of that city.  The club purchased the old office building from Xcel Energy about 10 years ago and now plans to use the donated property next door for parking and a daycare playground.

Xcel Energy's retired Cameo Generating Station, near Grand Junction, Colo., donated a 1949 General Electric 45-ton locomotive to the Western Colorado Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society in a special ceremony at the Glenwood Springs Railroad Museum.  The Cameo plant used the locomotive to move coal in the days when coal was transported to the plant by railroad.  The museum will display the locomotive in its yard and also will use it for establishing and operating a short-line railroad in a rail corridor between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale, the route formerly known as the Denver & Rio Grand Aspen Branch.  The corridor is publicly owned by the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, which bought it to preserve for possible commuter rail service in the future.
