Charitable Giving

As a public utility, we work every day to bring value to our customers. One way we do this is by providing opportunities for our customers and employees to give back to the communities and causes they care about.

Project Share

Imagine turning on a light and nothing happens. Every year, thousands of friends, neighbors, children, and seniors would have been left in the dark if it wasn't for Project Share and donations from people like you. Project Share is a Washington State registered charity funded by donations from the community. Donations are tax deductible and help people in need maintain access to essential electricity services. 

Since 1990, City Light has been assisting customers who are facing financial challenges and have past due electricity bills with emergency assistance made possible by Project Share. 

Three Ways to Donate

  • Give online with your credit or debit card ($10.00 minimum donation). If you are donating from outside the United States, please use our call or mail donation options.
