More residents than ever need help paying their bills—and Fort Collins Utilities' Fund, based entirely on customer donations, can no longer keep up.
Your donation will help us meet this increased need. Through a one-time donation or a set monthly amount, your support will help keep the heat, lights and water on for many of our community members.
Your Donation Counts
The fund has helped over 2,000 residents since 2004, and the number of those in need of assistance increases each year. Donations of just $12.50/month or a one-time donation of $150/year will help one family avoid having their utilities shut off.
Any donation, regardless of the amount, is appreciated. Your contribution may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.

To Request Assistance
Utility customers who have received a shut-off notice can get payment assistance once during a 12-month period. Call Catholic Charities Larimer County at 970.484.5010 to schedule an appointment. Both English and Spanish are spoken.
An intake worker will interview you and contact Utilities for information about your account. If you qualify and money is available, you'll receive assistance that can be credited to your electric and water accounts.
