The Dollar Donation Fund is a program that can make a big difference for your neighbors in need. This is an easy, effortless way you can provide financial assistance to families that find it hard to pay their utility bills.
Dollar Donation Fund allows you to choose an amount to donate to the Fuel Fund of Maryland each month – either $1, $2, $5, $10, or $20 a month. BGE will add that amount to your bill, and when you pay your bill in full we will forward your contribution to the Fuel Fund.
The Fuel Fund of Maryland is a non-profit that provides emergency assistance for low-income families, and people in crisis, who cannot pay their gas, electric or oil bills, as well as assistance with wood, kerosene, and propane. Over 18,000 Central Maryland people received support from the Fuel Fund last year.
All of your donations to the Fuel Fund will be tax-deductible, and the Fuel Fund will send you a summary of your donations for your records after the end of the year. You may stay enrolled for as long as you like, change your donation amount or withdraw from the program at any time (see below).
To join the Dollar Donation Fund, simply complete our online form or call BGE at 800.685.0123.
