You can even give anonymously.”

An Energy Gift provides an opportunity to help a friend or family member. This gift lets you help someone by making a payment toward their KCP&L bill. You do not have to be a KCP&L customer yourself to purchase this gift, anyone can purchase an Energy Gift for one of KCP&L’s customers.

Another great gift for those in need is a one-time or monthly contribution to KCP&L’s Dollar-Aide Program.
