Operation Round Up Supports Our Communities
Members of South Central Power Company allow their electric bills to be rounded up to the nearest dollar each month in support of Operation Round Up. Money donated through the program is used to support schools, civic groups, charitable organizations, food pantries, fire departments, youth activities and more in communities throughout the 24-county service territory. Every year, funds are also set aside for scholarships to help graduating high school seniors better afford the cost of college. More than $500,000 is awarded every year. Through this program, a little change from each member leads to big changes in the lives of men, women and children across our service area.
Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis. Scholarship applications are due in December of each year and awards are announced in early February. To apply, complete the application form and submit it to Liz Bainter, community development director.
