Give Power

Our drive is to be Maryland's leading organization dedicated to the efficient delivery of cost-effective energy assistance and energy education (Watt Watchers® workshops) for low-income households to maintain their well-being and encourage self-sufficiency.

We believe we can provide assistance to every Maryland household struggling to afford their utility bill. And there are several ways you can support us in reaching our goal and making an immediate impact in the lives of our clients.

Please consider

  • monthly or planned giving;
  • workplace and matching gifts through your employer;
  • volunteer and "friendraiser" opportunities; or
  • purchases from businesses that support the Fuel Fund of Maryland.

Together we can make a difference in our neighbors' lives.

Monthly Giving

As a recurring donor, you have the ability to donate a set amount of your choice each month, view your monthly giving statements, and make updates to your donations as you please.

When you join our monthly giving program, you are joining a special group of people who contribute to us on a regular basis to ensure that every Marylander is safe and comfortable in their home.
