Day of Giving Rescheduled for September 21

September 14th, 2016


The Day of Giving online fundraising event was hampered by technical malfunctions earlier this year. Luckily, Dollar Energy Fund will once again be participating in The Pittsburgh Foundation’s 2016 Day of Giving, which was rescheduled for Wednesday, September 21, 2016, from 8:00 a.m. to midnight. Please visit our profile page on to make your contribution.

Starting September 14, you can pre-schedule a donation! Your pre-scheduled donation will NOT be processed until September 21. Click on our profile page above for more information.

Every donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our partnering utility companies. By giving to Dollar Energy Fund on the Day of Giving, you are maximizing your donation dollars and helping more local families. All Day of Giving contributions will receive this additional dollar-for-dollar match from our partners.

100% of all donations and matching funds will be used to support your neighbors in need. Through our unique arrangement with our utility partners, we are able to direct all charitable contributions towards providing assistance grants through our Hardship Program. No organizational operating expenses are paid through donated funds.

All donations will be used to help families in your community. We believe in neighbors helping neighbors. Your donation will be designated for distribution in your area, allowing you to be a neighborhood hero for those struggling to afford basic electric utility services.

The Pittsburgh Foundation will be providing funds as incentive prizes for participating organizations.  Dollar Energy Fund is hoping to secure some of these funds, but we need your help!  There is a prize for twitter mentions on the Day of Giving and we are asking everyone to play along, either by creating a new tweet or retweeting one of ours, especially during the 10 a.m. hour, and include the hashtag #16DOG2 and mention @DollarEnergyFnd for it to count.

Additional incentive prizes will be awarded for most donors throughout the day, most new donors, most unique zip codes of donors, and more, so any donation made, no matter how large or small, can result in additional funding for Dollar Energy Fund and limited-income customers.

We hope we can count on your support to make the Day of Giving a success for Dollar Energy Fund!
