Giving Programs

Here are some ways that one Central Hudson customer can be helpful to others, who may be less fortunate, or who find themselves facing financial challenges:

Central Hudson Gift Certificates

You may purchase gift certificates for any Central Hudson customer who could use a little help paying their gas and electric bills, in any dollar amount.

Central Hudson will mail an announcement card to the recipient of your gift. Or, if you’d prefer to remain anonymous, we will honor your request. Please complete and return the Gift Certificate Application with a check for the amount of your gift, or call Customer Account Services at 845-452-2700.

The Good Neighbor Fund

The Good Neighbor Fund provides a "last resort" grant to help pay the energy bills of customers who have exhausted all other forms of public and private assistance. It is funded by customer contributions, matched by Central Hudson’s stockholders, and administered by The Salvation Army. Click here for details about how to contribute to the Good Neighbor Fund and how to apply for assistance.

“If you can help, please do. If you need help, please ask. 
Neighbors helping neighbors; that’s what it’s all about.”
