Operation Round Up

What is Operation Round UP?

Tri-County EMC does more than provide power to its members; we embrace and give back to our community, and it’s not just our employees who give back. Approximately 95% of Tri-County EMC members have opened up their hearts and are part of our Operation Round program that donates a small amount of change each month to benefit individuals and non-profit organizations in our service territory.

The average amount rounded up in a year is $6 per member. The maximum amount anyone will contribute is $11.88 in a year (99¢ × 12 months). The money raised is placed with the Tri-County EMC Foundation, which is governed by volunteer co-op members who serve on the board of directors and review grant requests. The RoundUP Board meets 4 times a year. Rounding up only applies to Rate 2 Residential Accounts.

Since the program began in September 2000, $2,489,883.43 has been given to individuals and non-profit organizations in need of assistance.

To apply for funds from Operation Round-Up, contact Deidra Grantham, Manager of Marketing and Communications at (919) 735-2611 or email Deidra Grantham.
