Operation RoundUP is a Jackson Energy program that gives individuals like yourself the opportunity to improve their community. It is people helping people – people like you providing a small contribution each month that will fund grants for civic organizations, volunteer fire departments and many other groups.
How does it work? Operation RoundUP is funded solely by Jackson Energy members who voluntarily choose to round their electric bill to the next highest dollar amount. The extra money, which averages around 50 cents a month, is applied to the Operation RoundUP fund. For example, if your total bill is $74.62, your bill would be rounded up to $75 with the extra 38 cents going to Operation RoundUP. Each month, the amount donated may range from one penny to 99 cents, with a maximum of $11.88, per year and is tax deductible. You can also make one-time donations by visiting your local office, or calling 800-262-7480 and letting a Member Services Representative know that you want to make the one-time donation to the Operation RoundUP fund.
How it the money administered? Operation RoundUP is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees who represent the seven primary counties served by Jackson Energy. The trustees operate independently from Jackson Energy Cooperative Board of Directors. The trustees receive and evaluate grant applications on a quarterly basis.
