National Grid
Care & Share Energy Fund

Care & Share was founded by National Grid in 1981 to provide emergency financial assistance to low income families and individuals who are experiencing difficulty paying heat related bills. This year, HeartShare Human Services of New York is administering the program.

Any National Grid customer whose household meets the income guidelines of the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) may apply.

Every dollar contributed to the fund is tax-deductible and will make a difference for someone who desperately needs help to stay warm.

With your help, Care & Share will continue to offer emergency energy assistance to those who need it most.

Please join National Grid’s stockholders, employees and customers by contributing to help people in need.

National Grid and HeartShare Human Services of New York are providing a new way for New Yorkers to help their neighbors by donating to the Care and Share Fund by simply texting “CARES” to 27722 which will generate a $5 tax-deductible contribution to help families in need stay warm this winter.

The mobile donation campaign allows National Grid and HeartShare to expand options for New Yorkers to donate to the Care and Share Heating Fund. National Grid already provides envelopes in its mailings to customers to encourage them to contribute to HeartShare.
