Did you notice someone going above and beyond for the limited-income community this winter? Dollar Energy Fund is currently seeking  award nominations for our 34th Annual Luncheon in September.

Each year during the luncheon, we present the Betty Ann Simon Memorial Award and our Golden Eagle Awards to community members who make a significant impact on the lives of limited-income individuals and families served through Dollar Energy Fund’s Hardship Program.

In memory of Dollar Energy Fund’s founder, the Betty Ann Simon Memorial Award recognizes a leader who has “made significant contributions to the limited-income community through advocacy, limited-income program advancements, program creation, legislation, and program funding attainment that have assisted Dollar Energy Fund clients and limited-income individuals throughout the state build a path to self-sufficiency.” The winner of this award will be publicly recognized at Dollar Energy Fund’s Annual Luncheon. Also, Dollar Energy Fund will award the first utility assistance grant of the 2017-2018 program year in the name of the Betty Ann Simon Memorial Award recipient. We invite you to nominate a community leader for this prestigious award by completing the Betty Ann Simon Memorial Award Nomination Form. This is an excellent opportunity to recognize leaders who strive to assist the low and limited-income community and make the world a better place.

Additionally, Dollar Energy Fund’s Golden Eagle Awards are presented to multiple representatives at our partnering community-based organizations, utility companies, foundations, government entities as well as members of Dollar Energy Fund’s Board of Directors who consistently “soar above and beyond” in their efforts to help us assist our neighbors in need. If you would like to nominate a deserving individual, please complete the Golden Eagle Award Nomination Form.

All nominations must be submitted no later than Monday, August 7, 2017, to be eligible for consideration. Forms may be submitted electronically to, or via fax to Jody Robertson at 412-431-2085.
