How will it work?
Sign up to participate in the Cool Down for Warmth event and work toward raising a minimum of $2,500 (team) or $1,000 (individual) for Dollar Energy Fund.
Do I have to sit in the ice house?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting our ice house in Market Square this year. Our 2021 Cool Down for Warmth is completely virtual, so you can raise funds and spread awareness from the safety of your own home!
How will donations be collected?
Donors can contribute anytime before or during the event on your personal fundraising website on CrowdRise. We encourage participants to recruit as many donations in advance as possible. All donations will receive a dollar-for-dollar match and 100% of all funds will go directly to provide utility assistance grants to local families in need.
Will there be any incentives?
The ultimate incentive is that you’ll get to help local households who are struggling to afford their monthly utility costs. If you raise $1,000 as an individual, your efforts, along with a matching contribution from our utility partners, will provide grants to approx. six families. As a team, your $2,500 raised, matched by utility companies, will help 16 families.
In addition, exceeding your goal could get you recognition on-air!
What if I don’t meet my goal?
Any amount of money helps! This packet will provide you with all of the tools you’ll need to reach out to your family, friends and coworkers before the event. We’ll do anything we can to help make your campaign a success!
