Share the Warmth

Together, we can all stay warm.

The Share the Warmth program provides financial assistance with heating bills during the winter season. You can make an impact! A small gift (even a gift of just $1) goes directly to an individual or family.

Share the Warmth was established in 1985 to assist Carolinas residents in need with winter heating bills and is funded by our customers, employees and the Duke Energy Foundation. Contributions are matched dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000.

The Share the Warmth program provides financial assistance with heating bills during the winter season for individuals and families in need within our service territories in the Carolinas.

Funding for Share the Warmth comes from our customers, employees and the Duke Energy Foundation. Each winter, Duke Energy customers are sent bill inserts along with self-addressed postage-paid envelopes about the program. The Duke Energy Foundation will then match up to $500,000 in customer contributions during the heating season.
