Exelon Foundation Helps Power South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art and Action


WASHINGTON — The Exelon Foundation today announced its support of South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art and Action taking place today in coordination with the American Film Institute (AFI), National Park Foundation, President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH), and South by Southwest®.

South by South Lawn, an event inspired by South by Southwest®, brings together creators, innovators and organizers who work day in and day out to improve the lives of their fellow Americans and people around the world. It is a call to action for every American to roll up their sleeves and make a positive mark on our country — and a celebration of the great work that we have already accomplished together.

“We are proud to support this event, which will bring creative thinkers together to share ideas and identify solutions to the complex challenges facing our country,” said Chris Crane, president and CEO of Exelon, and chairman of the Exelon Foundation. “The Exelon Foundation believes that innovation and investment in emerging technologies are critical to addressing climate change and meeting the changing needs of our communities. Harnessing our ingenuity can help bring ideas to the forefront, so that we can help lead the nation’s transition to a cleaner, brighter energy future.”

The Exelon Foundation is an independent, nonprofit philanthropic organization funded solely by Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC). Exelon is a Fortune 100 energy company with the largest number of utility customers and one of the largest, cleanest generation fleets in the United States.
