South Central Power Company Foundation
Consumer-members of South Central Power Company allow their electric bills to be rounded up to the nearest dollar each month in support of the South Central Power Company Foundation’s Operation Round Up program.
The Foundation, which was created in 2014, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that is governed by a board of directors who represent each of South Central Power’s 11 districts. The board, which is independent of the South Central Power Company Board of Trustees, meets quarterly to consider grant requests.
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 also are set aside for scholarships to help graduating high school seniors better afford the cost of college.
Members are provided an annual contribution total on their January electric bills and can use that record for tax purposes.
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.
