How Can You Help?

Columbia Gas customers help support the HeatShare fuel fund with personal donations. Columbia Gas matches 50 cents for every $1 contributed. Together, these contributions fund a grant program designed to help customers manage their energy costs.

To become a donor, indicate your contribution level on the back of the payment coupon on your monthly bill. Monthly contributions will simply be added to your bill. For a one-time donation, enclose a separate check made payable to HeatShare along with your bill payment.
