Round Up Your Bill to Help Others

What is Operation Round-Up®?

Operation Round-Up® is a program that allows Nishnabotna Valley REC consumer-owners to make a difference in their own communities. Operation Round-Up® allows you to “round-up” yourmonthly electric bills and donate the difference to a charitable fund to be used in Nishnabotna Valley REC’s service territory. The minimum amount you contribute each month is $0.01, and the maximum is $0.99.

How does Operation Round-Up® work?

If you choose to participate, your electric bill will be rounded-up to the next highest dollar each month. For example, if your electric bill is $52.71, an additional balance of 29 cents will be added, making your bill an even $53.00.

How will the funds be used?

Donations are made from the fund to non-profit organizations and individuals in need and also for family emergency disasters. The program has been successfully implemented in more than 200 electric co-ops across the nation. The program is administered by Nishnabotna Valley REC’s Board of Directors. 

Application forms are available at the REC office and will be reviewed by the Board of Directors quarterly. Applications should be received no later than the 15th of the month at the end of the quarter. Contributions to the fund are not tax deductible.

By joining with other Nishnabotna Valley REC members, your small monthly donation can make a bigger impact. It’s what a cooperative is all about. If you would like to sign up for this worthwhile program and help make a difference, please download and fill out this form and return it to our office.
