Black Hills Cares


Sometimes families in our community struggle to pay their energy bills. Black Hills Cares* is a way for you to help. We’ll match your gift to our neighbors in need dollar for dollar.

In the past 11 years, Black Hills Cares provided more than $5.5 million in customer, employee and company donations to assist those in need. In 2018 alone, 2,300 families received assistance from Black Hills Cares funds.

 

How you can help

To give, check the box on your payment stub or fill out the online donation form to indicate the donation of your choice.

  • If you select the Round Up option, we’ll automatically round up your monthly bill to the next dollar and donate the difference.
  • The recurring monthly donation is another great way you can help. Select a donation amount on your payment stub or write in an amount that fits your budget in the “Other” field.
  • If you donate through Round Up or a recurring monthly amount, we’ll add that amount to your utility bill until you let us know to discontinue your enrollment. If at any time you want to stop your donation, call us at 888-890-5554.
