Donation Programs


Contribution options

We offer two programs which allow you to assist friends, loved ones and low-income families in our area with energy costs. Share the Warmth, Inc. assists low-income households across our service territory with home weatherization measures to reduce energy bills. The Gift of Energy program allows you to make a contribution to the energy bills of a friend or loved one.

Share the warmth

Vectren established Share the Warmth, a private foundation, to assist income-eligible households with home weatherization measures to reduce their energy bills. Each year, Vectren matches all public donations to Share the Warmth, up to an annual total of $225,000. Share the Warmth funds are distributed annually to Indiana and Ohio Low Income Weatherization Assistance Programs. Learn more about Share the Warmth.
