Plus-100 Community Giving Challenge

Created in 1982, Plus-1 is a partnership between MIFA and Memphis Light, Gas & Water (MLGW) that provides utility assistance for individuals and families in financial crisis. MLGW customers fund the program by adding $1 or more to their utility bills each month, or by making a one-time gift directly to MIFA.

Hear from our friends and supporters in their videos below about why they support Plus-1, and help us reach our goal of enrolling 100 new businesses and corporations in Plus-1 by August 15.

Sign up to give monthly through MLGW's My Account portal at, or make a one-time gift to MIFA.

Your contributions go directly to work helping families facing financial challenges. THANK YOU for supporting MIFA Emergency Services through Plus-1!
