Since it was founded in 1982, more than $13 million has been raised to help more than 90,000 families. Dollar More helps the needy pay their energy bills and is funded by voluntary contributions from Ameren customers and Ameren Corporation.
Dollar More is the largest energy fuel fund program in the area. Money donated to Dollar More stays in the community and is used to pay a wide variety of home energy bills including electric, gas, oil and propane.
Ameren Corporation invests around $200,000 each year in Dollar More, bringing combined customer and corporate contributions to almost $1 million.
All Dollar More contributions go to the needy through a network of human services agencies. The United Way and Ameren share administrative costs of the program so NO contributions are used to pay to administer the program. All contributions go to the needy.
