Charitable Partnerships and Service

Dedication to Children's Charities

As part of our focus on a better tomorrow, Direct Energy supports organizations focused on improving the lives of children. Through corporate donations and employee volunteering, we are able to provide charitable assistance that expands beyond our offices and into our communities.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Direct Energy is a proud partner of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. This is a network of 170 children's hospital across the United States and Canada. The money raised supports research and training, purchases equipment, and pays for uncompensated care – all to save and improve the lives of children.

Our Direct Energy home service brands – One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing and Mister Sparky – first formed a relationship with CMNH in 2014. In 2015, the relationship expanded to the Direct Energy portfolio of companies and raised more than $1 million for CMNH, which qualified the company to join the Miracle Million Club. The club honors those companies that have raised $1 million or more in one year for CMN Hospitals.

To support CMNH, Direct Energy created an internal initiative called the DE in Motion Miracle Challenge that aims to improve personal health while helping kids at CMN Hospitals. For every mile an employee walks, runs, bikes, jogs or even swims, Direct Energy makes a donation. Since its inception in 2015, more than 5,000 employees participated for a total donation of $300,000. The funds collected during the fitness challenge were distributed to the member Children's Miracle Network Hospitals serving the communities where Direct Energy has offices including Houston, TX; Tulsa, OK; Iselin, NJ; Buffalo Grove, IL; Pittsburgh, PA; Tempe, AZ; Columbia, MD and Calgary, Alberta.
