our philosophy

  • A Local Endeavor

    The money you raise for heating fuel assistance stays within your community or your county. You are helping your neighbors.

  • Everyone Can Help

    One of the founding tenets of Ski for Heat was that it should be fun and easy for everyone to participate in, whether you are five years old or eight-five, first-time skier or former pro. There is no registration fee to take part in an event, nor is there a minimum amount that has to be raised.

  • All Donations go to the Cause

    When you make a contribution to Ski for Heat, all of the proceeds go to the heating fuel assistance fund at the local community action agency. Ski for Heat is funded by generous donors and is run solely by volunteers.
