Register your Cause!

Cleco has partnered with Benevity, an international company that provides charitable employee donation management and grant management platforms.
We strongly invite you to enroll your organization in Benevity’s Causes Portal which helps organizations access support from hundreds of corporate giving, volunteering and grant making programs. Enrollment also allows electronic funds transfer (EFT) payments, so you receive donations faster and build a profile that makes it easier for Cleco, its employees and at other like-minded companies to find your organization and support your cause. You'll be connecting your nonprofit to corporate giving, granting and volunteering opportunities at Cleco and beyond.

Note: If you are unable to find your organization, please visit this help page for instructions on registering with Benevity. 
For additional assistance, you can submit a request through Benevity.
