Community Donation Fund

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it harder for many customers in our community to afford their utility bills. You can help by making a donation to Seattle Public Utilities' (SPU's) Community Donation Fund. Every dollar donated through the Community Donation Fund goes directly to help supplement SPU's Emergency Assistance Program, which provides one-time emergency financial assistance to help qualifying customers pay their SPU bills. Donations can be made online with a debit or credit card, through your Utility Bill, or by check.

Donate today to help a neighbor in need.
