Since 1983, the Operation Share Energy Fund has provided energy assistance grants to qualified customers who experience difficulty paying their heating bills. The Fund became a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2005. This community-based program is funded by voluntary donations from UGI employees, UGI customers and concerned citizens. In addition, UGI provides a corporate donation to help fund the program.
UGI personnel work with over 25 agencies to administer Operation Share funds. Operation Share is a supplement to federal or state energy assistance programs, not a replacement.
The Operation Share program is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. The tax ID number is 20-4214422. All contributions made to Operation Share are tax-deductible. Learn more about how you can donate to the Operation Share Energy Fund.
Donating is a personal choice. We feel so fortunate when individuals choose to help our customers by contributing to Operation Share. So, why donate? Brian Ravel, a UGI Customer Outreach representative and member of our "Miracle Team" really sums it up best:
"I believe as human beings we have to give back to people in this world. We have to educate and inspire them to have a better quality of life. [The rewards - for you and the person you're helping - are immeasurable].”
