Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative members have the opportunity to participate in an innovative program that is truly a community concern in the cooperative spirit. The program provides funding for all kinds of worthy projects in the CVEC service area. It's called Operation Round-Up and it's administered by the Canadian Valley Charitable Trust, a board of community leaders in CVEC's service area who serve on a voluntary basis.
The electric bills of participating CVEC customers are rounded up to the next dollar each month. The extra cents collected form each customer will go into the Round-Up fund. The average customer will contribute about $6.00 per year. If all CVEC customers join in, Operation Round-Up would have more than $120,000 annually for worthwhile projects.
Contributions to Operation Round-Up are tax deductible and we'll note on your contribution on your January electric bill each year. We'll keep you informed through the Electralite news letter on the activities on the Canadian Valley Trust and give updates on monies awarded. All Operation Round-Up funds stay right here in our community. Guide lines for awarding this money address special needs for individuals or families as well as special community projects. Political campaigns and issues will not be considered for funding.
