Operation Round Up®
Operation Round-Up® is a program that allows Nishnabotna Valley REC member-owners to make a difference in their own communities. Operation Round-Up® allows you to “round-up” your monthly 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 $152.71, an additional balance of 29 cents will be added, making your bill an even $153.00.
How will 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.
How can I apply?
Application forms can be downloaded here or they are available at the REC office and will be reviewed by the Board of Directors as needed. Applications can be dropped off at the Nishnabotna Valley REC office. Contributions to the fund are not tax deductible.
