Operation Round Up®
As an Inland Power member, you have a unique opportunity to support Operation Round Up®, a program that provides financial support to organizations and individuals within the 13 counties served by Inland Power. The concept of the program is an extension of the principle on which electric cooperatives were built more than 50 years ago – neighbors helping neighbors to benefit the communities in which we work and live. All that is required is the “round up” of your power bill.
How does it work?
Small change that changes lives,” is the foundation that Operation Round Up® is built upon. This program gathers voluntary contributions from Inland Power members enrolled in the program. These members have authorized the Cooperative to “round up” their monthly electric bill to the next highest dollar. For example, if the bill is $55.54, it is rounded up to $56 and the extra 46 cents is contributed to the Inland Power Operation Round Up® fund. This small, monthly contribution can make a huge impact.
The amount “rounded up” on each participating member’s bill averages a total of $6 a year or 50 cents a month (maximum of $11.88 per year) – a small amount to help worthy causes in our community. The monthly bill statement shows how much is being donated to Operation Round Up® each month. The amount donated is tax deductible as tax laws permit.
Operation Round Up® is a program to generate and collect charitable donations to improve the quality of life for our community through individual, family and nonprofit organization donations. How are Operation Round Up® funds distributed?Individuals and organization can request funding by filling out the grant applications below.
Applications will be reviewed by the foundation board comprised of Inland Power members. The primary purpose of Operation Round Up® is to address charitable needs and provide financial assistance anywhere in the 13 counties served by Inland Power. We will keep you updated on where the funds are going through the Light Reading newsletter and online.
