|Operation Round Up
Operation Round Up, an innovative program that provides funding for all kinds of worthy projects here in our own community. Through Operation Round Up, Jefferson Energy Cooperative Foundation fills the food, shelter, health and education needs of people in our community.
How Does It Work?
The Jefferson Energy Cooperative bills of participating consumers are automatically "rounded-up" to the nearest dollar. For example, if your bill is $92.71 you will pay $93.00 with the 29 cents going directly to the Jefferson Energy Cooperative Foundation. The average Member contributes about six dollars a year. It's small change that changes lives.
How Is The Money Used?
Requests for assistance from The Jefferson Energy Cooperative Foundation are evaluated and awarded by a separate board of directors, made up of nine volunteer leaders from our own community. The Jefferson Energy Cooperative Foundation is a state chartered, non-profit organization and any small administrative costs will be absorbed by Jefferson Energy Cooperative. Rest assured, 100% of your contributions goes to make life better for our community.
How Do I Join?
Member-Owners of Jefferson Energy Cooperative are automatically included in Operation Round Up. If you decide not to participate, or if you chose to discontinue your contribution at any time in the future, simply contact the office of Jefferson Energy Cooperative.
What Are The Benefits of Operation Round Up?
If all 26,000 Jefferson Energy Cooperative Member-Owners participate, approximately $156,000 will be “rounded up” each year! These funds can be used to purchase emergency medical equipment, further education, provide hot meals to the elderly, buy equipment for the handicapped, or to fill a host of other needs in our community.
Your contributions to Operation Round Up are tax deductible and you'll receive a summary of your contribution on your January and February bills.
Jefferson Energy Cooperative will use every available means to keep you informed whenever Operation Round Up funds are used by The Jefferson Energy Cooperative Foundation to make life better for our community.
