Oregon Energy Fund

Oregon Energy fund, formerly HEAT Oregon, was founded in 1989 to help low income Oregonians become more energy self-reliant. HEAT Oregon gifts warmth and power to Oregonians facing hardships. Oregon Energy Fund's primary program objective is to prevent disconnection of utility service during inclement weather by providing bill payment assistance to low income households in emergency situations. Oregon Energy Fund partners with more than 30 local community and social service organizations throughout the state of Oregon to help deliver energy assistance to qualifying households. Donations made to Oregon Energy Fund from any county in Oregon provide energy assistance to neighbors within the same county from which they were donated; Oregon Energy Fund calls it Neighbor Helping Neighbor. Over the years, Oregon Energy Fund has helped to keep the heat and lights on for tens of thousands of low-income households.
