Quanta is a family company and we consider the communities where we live and work to be part of that family. We embrace a culture where each of us – and our company as a whole – can make a significant impact on each other and our communities. We search out and create long-term partnerships with nonprofit organizations that are truly making a difference. Quanta has volunteered time and committed financial resources to many of these organizations for many years. We remain committed to responsibly use the resources we have to make the world around us better. In 2018, we collectively donated millions of dollars to various nonprofit causes in North America.
Quanta Cares was established in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, in 2017, to help Quanta employees devastated by that storm. Employees’ donations, matched by the company, raised $1.3 million initially. The fund has continued to grow and benefit employees when impacted by natural tragedies.Quanta Cares provides confidential, timely, short-term crisis relief for those employees in the Quanta Services family needing assistance with living expenses such as food, clothing, utilities, temporary housing, property repairs and other basic necessities. Many Quanta employees contribute to Quanta Cares and the program has assisted more than 50 employees in times of need.
The Astros Foundation is the official 501(c)(3) team charity of the Houston Astros.

The cornerstone initiatives of the program align closely with Quanta’s own – and include the Community Leaders program, the Astros MLB Youth Academy and the Astros RBI Program (reviving baseball in inner cities).
Since 2003, our partnership with Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas, with Duke Austin serving as an Executive Committee Board Member, has been based on a mutual commitment to excellence, benefiting the needs of future workforce entrants.
