Helping neighbors in need

Tampa Electric Share, a program co-sponsored by Tampa Electric and the Salvation Army, lets you help customers in need in your area pay their electric bills.

How you can help

As a Tampa Electric customer, you may make a voluntary, tax deductible contribution with your monthly electric bill payment. Submit your request online to contribute a monthly Share donation that will be included on your residential electric bill or business electric bill . Once we receive and process your request, it may be one or two billing cycles before your Share deduction appears on your monthly billing statement. It will appear as a separate line item indicating the amount of your monthly pledge. We will provide you with a record of your previous year's contributions on your January billing statement.

You may also make a one-time contribution. Donate Now! Complete and print the form and enclose your one-time contribution as a check or money order.

Every dollar you donate goes directly to helping a neighbor in need. No portion of your contribution is used for fundraising or administrative costs. For every contribution made, Tampa Electric and Peoples Gas will increase the impact by matching dollar-for-dollar, up to a combined $500,000 a year.

Donations are collected by Tampa Electric and forwarded to the Salvation Army to help eligible clients.
