Enroll in NW Natural Paperless Billing

From March 1 through July 1, 2020, every paperless billing enrollment will help ensure each child in foster care gets a dedicated court advocate

To thank our many customers who receive paperless bills, NW Natural shareholders will donate $5,000 to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), serving local children in the foster care system. And for every new paperless billing customer enrolled between March 1-July 1, we’ll donate an additional $5 to CASA. Here’s why:

  • Oregon mandates that every child in foster care—about 11,500 in 2018—has a CASA. Yet there is no mandated funding source.
  • CASA, a nonprofit, trains volunteers to represent children in court. The goal: Every foster child finds a stable, permanent home. Even before COVID-19, CASA was only able to serve a third of these children.
  • Now, CASA is preparing for a surge in children entering foster care as a result of unprecedented emotional, financial and health stressors facing many families at home. CASA anticipates an increase in the number of abuse or neglect reports when children return to school and interact with their teachers again.

Would you like to help? Enroll in paperless billing before July 1, 2020. NW Natural shareholders will donate $5 to CASA on your behalf. You will begin receiving a helpful email every month, letting you know when your paperless bill is ready. To learn more about supporting CASA, visit CASAhelpskids.org.
