    (3BL Media / theCSRfeed) August 9, 2011 - Xcel Energy increased charitable giving $1.23 million in 2010, according to the company’s third annual Corporate Responsibility Report. Many of our corporate peers have had to reduce giving over the past two years, but we have maintained our corporate contributions and our employees have given more of their money and time, which we have been able to match, said Monique Lovato, director of Corporate Giving for Xcel Energy. “We saw contributions through our matching gift program increase 16 percent and employee volunteerism grow 15 percent in 2010.”
