Join us in helping low-income residents pay their heating, cooling and water bills with Dollar-Aide.


During times of need, Dollar-Aide helps eligible individuals and families by assisting with their utility bills to avoid loss of service. The program has helped thousands of families in our community. To make all tax-deductible donations go farther, Evergy matches every dollar with an additional 50-cent energy credit donation.

Last year, our customers, employees and the company match have raised more than $140,000 to help our community.

The value of Dollar-Aide 

“Dollar-Aide is a tremendous program that enables us to help people in times when we normally would not be able to,” said Gladys Lizama of the Guadalupe Centers, Inc. (GCI) of Kansas City, one of the agencies that receives funding from Dollar-Aide to support its clients. “Often the private funds we have at GCI are intended for residents within our own zip code service area. Once, a man outside of this zip code area found himself unable to make his utility payment. In this case, since he was an Evergy customer, we could apply Dollar-Aide funds to his account. Evergy and Dollar-Aide really came through for us so we could help this gentleman get back on his feet.”
