Over $44,000 will support community projects.

(Osgood, Ind.) - In July, Southeastern Indiana REMC awarded $44,432 in Operation RoundUp® grants to 20 recipients from across the cooperative’s seven-county service territory.

Operation RoundUp® is an ongoing charitable fundraising program to benefit worthwhile community projects. A nine-person volunteer board of trustees administers the funds, which are kept in the Southeastern Indiana REMC Community Fund until they are disbursed.

“These grants are made possible by the generosity of co-op members who opt to round their electric bill up to the next whole dollar each month” said Keith Mathews, General Manager. “This is a voluntary program. Members can opt in or out of the program at any time.”

Applicants must be 501C groups or organizations and must meet the eligibility requirements defined in the program guidelines. For the most part, funds will be granted to meet the needs of applicants that are not being met through other sources.

“These funds will not be used to pay utility bills, nor will they go towards political campaigns,” said Mathews.

The next opportunity to apply for an operation round up grant is December 2022 and grants will be awarded in January 2023.
