Give help

We rise by lifting others. That’s why we support and provide programs to help those who are most vulnerable. 

One-time energy gift

Help someone pay their energy bill with a one-time energy gift. You can gift any amount you’d like and we’ll apply the donation to the recipient’s account.

To present another customer with an energy gift, complete the energy gift form. Do not include an energy gift donation with your own bill payment.

Black Hills Cares

You can help your neighbors in need pay their energy bills with a donation to Black Hills Cares, our energy assistance program. We match all donations dollar for dollar, then pass the funds along to local assistance agencies.

To give, check the box on your bill payment stub to indicate the donation of your choice: one-time donation, recurring donation or the round-up option. If you select the round-up option, we’ll automatically round up your monthly bill to the next dollar and donate the difference.
