Keep Wisconsin Warm/Cool Fund
The Keep Wisconsin Warm/Cool Fund is a statewide non-profit charity that assists low-income households who cannot afford to pay their energy bills. In the face of the growing unmet need, existing resources on the decline cannot begin to help those who are facing life-threatening energy emergencies. During this difficult time, now more than ever, KWW/CF is committed to expanding its efforts to raise public awareness of the energy crises that are being faced by thousands of Wisconsinites.
KWW/CF is recognized as a national model for the delivery of services by energy emergency charities, but there is also no place in the country that has seen the cross-section of support that KWW/CF has from neighbors, family, friends, agency officials, utilities, insurance and medical providers, clergy and others who have made such a difference.
KWW/CF also takes particular pride in its ability to reach out to Wisconsin’s most hidden and isolated poor whose pride is a major barrier to asking for help. Uniquely, KWW/CF provided direct series as well as much needed financial help to those most in need in every community in the state.
Because of the tireless dedication of its tremendous voluntary agencies and supporters, KWW/CF is able to target 95 cents of every dollar contributed directly to those households that need it most.
