This month as we celebrate Thanksgiving, we would like to express our appreciation to the thousands of Central members who choose to round up their electric bills each month to support worthy causes in our communities. Thank you!
The Central Community Foundation is a charitable organization established in 2006 by Central Rural Electric Cooperative to administer a program called Operation Round Up®.
A board of directors oversees the grant giving process and awards grants in four specific areas of interest: healthcare, education, personal need, and disaster relief.
Grants are made possible by Central members who choose to round up their electric bill to the nearest dollar each month – a donation of approximately
$6 per year.
Over the past 13 years, more than $500,000 in grants have been awarded to organizations and individuals in Central’s service area. The program is testament to Central’s mission of “Empowering Our Members and Communities.”
Interested individuals and organizations can find the grant guidelines and application on our website at https://mycentral.coop/operation-round-up.
