Oregon Energy Fund provides energy bill assistance to our neighbors in financial crisis in support of household stability.
Bottom Line for Portland
Since 1989, OEF has helped almost 300,000 Oregonians pay their utility bills in the face of financial crises like medical emergencies or layoffs. In 2017, we kept the lights on for 3,094 people, including 442 seniors, 405 differently abled individuals, and 1,099 children.
“I am on a veteran’s pension and Social Security benefits, and it doesn’t quite cover my utility bills. I wasn’t going to have electricity anymore if they wouldn’t have helped me. I am very grateful.”
The first 50 donors to donate $100+ will receive a pair of OEF pint glasses. The first donor to donate $500+ will receive a gift card for dinner and drinks at Han Oak.
