Last Chance: Double your impact

20190426_MatchQuote4_enews.pngThis is your final chance: Your donation will be doubled, thanks to a generous Illinois family—if you give before midnight.

CUB has helped cut utility bills by $20 billion over the last 35 years, thanks to small donations from Illinois consumers like you. So a $5 or $10 donation is a big deal to CUB. And today…

$5 >>>>>>>> like giving $10

$10 >>>>>>> like giving $20

Chris Conrad, a young man who was passionate about working for justice and saving the planet, passed away a year ago. But Chris’ family is honoring his life by matching donations in April. “CUB’s mission of doing good in Illinois aligns with the kind of person Chris was,” said one family member.

So you have until midnight to double your impact. This is your chance to…

  • Stand up to dirty power generators that are in Springfield and Washington trying to raise our electric bills by at least $1 billion.
  • Challenge billions of dollars in current and future rate hikes from companies like ComEd, Nicor, Peoples Gas and Ameren.
  • Support 500 free CUB events across Illinois to hand out money-saving LED bulbs to people, help them avoid energy scams and cut their bills through efficiency. (These events are open to YOU. See our event calendar at CitizensUtilityBoard.org.)

For 35 years, CUB has been your first line of defense against never-ending money grabs by our state’s big telecom, gas and electric giants. We’re the only organization in Illinois 100 percent devoted to fighting for lower utility bills.

Your contribution, whatever amount you can afford, is urgently needed. And remember, today you can be twice as powerful.

P.S. If you’ve already donated in 2019, thank you! We appreciate your generosity. During this busy period, it may take time to update our records.
