Operation Share

A Community-Based Customer Assistance Program
Explore Assistance Programs > Operation Share

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 21 agencies to administer Operation Share funds. Operation Share is a supplement to federal or state energy assistance programs, not a replacement.
