Fuel Fund

The Fuel Fund, an independent 501-c3 non-profit organization, provides energy assistance to help pay heating and utility bills for thousands of our neighbors in need.

How Can You Help?
Last year, almost 21,000 Maryland individuals received help from those who generously donated to the Fuel Fund of Maryland. Please consider helping families who can't afford to heat their homes this winter by giving to the Fuel Fund of Maryland. Your contributions go directly to those who need assistance. For information or to learn how to donate, visit the Fuel Fund website.

There are two other easy ways to donate to the Fuel Fund:

  • Enroll in the Dollar Donation Fund and BGE will add a donation to your bill every month in the amount you choose (see below); or
  • Add a little extra for the Fuel Fund when you pay your BGE bill. You'll see instructions when you pay online through

The 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. This includes 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 are 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.
