GIVE HELP

Home energy costs continue to be an overwhelming burden to more than 400,000 Connecticut residents, However, you can help make a difference in their lives.

The charitable donations we receive each year from our generous donors allow Operation Fuel to ensure that the most vulnerable residents in Connecticut have access to year-round energy assistance.

We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make a real, lasting impact on the lives of those in need of energy assistance.

Every dollar makes a difference! The average cost of electricity in Connecticut is $127. So a $4 donation would cover one day, a $28 donation would cover a week – $381 would cover an entire three-month season. You can donate now by clicking here – or scroll down to see other giving options. 

ADD-A-DOLLAR: Easiest Way to Give

One of the easiest ways to support families struggling with energy costs is through Operation Fuel’s Add-a-Dollar program, where we partner with utility providers so customers can conveniently add a one-time or monthly donation to their utility bill, and the providers send your donation to us so we can use it to help families. 100% of the money collected for the Add-a-Dollar program goes directly to providing energy assistance for Connecticut households.
