ComEd's Jennifer Montague and the Merit School of Music

Exelon employees are committed individual volunteers. We encourage them to support the causes they’re passionate about.

Removing barriers to music education in Chicago

Jennifer Montague, the Director of Business Strategy and Tech for ComEd, has served on the Board of Trustees at the Merit School of Music for 6 years. Founded in 1979 in response to music instruction being cut from the public school curriculum, Merit seeks to transform the lives of Chicago-area youth by removing barriers to high-quality music education.

A Merit graduate herself, Jennifer’s passion for music is evident in her work as a chief fundraiser and visionary leader for the program. As co-chair of Merit’s annual signature gala, Jennifer raised over $1 million for the program in 2016. 

The Achievement Award grant will support Merit’s initiatives, focusing on expanding their reach to even more low-income schools. 

About Exelon’s Energy for the Community Volunteer Awards Program 

Exelon makes grants totaling $200,000 in honor of 24 outstanding employee volunteers for their work in the community. Nonprofits will receive grants of $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000. Since 2007, the awards program has recognized 180 employees and provided more than $1.3 million to their nonprofit partners.

At Exelon, individual initiative drives our success.

Volunteerism is part of who we are. Our employees are purpose-driven in their work – and also on their own time. In 2016, 6,700 Exelon employees spent more than 171,000 hours volunteering with nonprofits in the diverse communities we serve. We encourage them to track their hours so we can recognize and reward their work.
