Help your neighbors

Every dollar raised will be matched by our partnering utility companies, maximizing your efforts and providing twice as many grants to maintain or restore basic gas, water and electric service for your neighbors in need.

Since 1983, Dollar Energy Fund has been working to meet our mission to improve the quality of life for households experiencing hardships by providing utility assistance and other services that lead to self-sufficiency. We pride ourselves on working with utility companies and their customers to provide assistance.

 

Dollar Energy Fund has grown to become the largest hardship fund in Pennsylvania and one of the largest in the country. Our organization has been there for those who need help with their utility bills, but the need is growing due to increased costs of everyday living expenses and severe winters. These circumstances have caused our average utility assistance grant to increase, which means we are able to help fewer families with the same amount of money.

 

These circumstances have also provided an increase in requests from outside our service area. With expansions into West Virginia, Ohio, Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Louisiana, Maryland, Arkansas, Kentucky and California, Dollar Energy Fund now partners with more than 450 community-based organizations. We realize that when a family is experiencing difficulty with their utility service, there is often a need for other assistance as well. Our holistic approach offers more services to those we help.

 

You can make a difference in the lives of the families we serve by donating to Dollar Energy Fund or hosting a fundraiser to benefit our organziation. Our unique program model allows us to leverage the generosity of the community to maximize the support from the utility companies and their customers. These companies provide a dollar-for-dollar match for every donation to our hardship fund and 100 percent of that money remains in your state to provide utility assistance for those less fortunate.
