Cool Down for Warmth - Be a Participant

Willing participants will stay in the house for a designated 30-minute time-slot as they work toward their minimum fundraising goal of $1,000 (individual) or $2,500 (team). Once they meet their goal, they will be able to vacate the house and “feel the warmth.”

The best news is that all donations collected will receive a dollar-for-dollar match from our partnering utility companies. All of the donations and matching funds will be used to help approximately six families per individual participant or 16 families per team.

As a participant, Dollar Energy Fund will provide you with all of the necessary tools you’ll need to reach out to your family, friends and co-workers and obtain donations, including a solicitation letter, social media messaging and access to a personal web-based donation portal. We want you to succeed for the sake of our clients, so we’ll do what we can to help you out!
