What is it?
Operation Round Up® is a charitable fundraising program that allows Southern Indiana Power members to donate the spare change on their bills to help those in need throughout the community. With the average donation of only $6 per year, and never more than 99 cents a month, you can make a small investment that pays big dividends in your community.
How does it work?
When members participate in the program, we “round up” their energy bills to the next dollar. The difference goes into a special fund administered by the SIREC Community Trust, Inc. and distributed by an independent committee. The committee will send the money right back into the community, to the places that need it most.
Who distributes the funds?
The Operation Round Up funds are distributed by a committee made of volunteers by the cooperative board. The Operation Round Up committee meets twice a year to review the grant applications and select which organizations will be funded.
When are the next grant applications accepted?
The Operation Round Up grant applications are currently being accepted. The grant period began Aug. 1 and will go through Sept. 15. Please look under the Community tab, Operation Round Up for applications and guidelines.
