Grants Awarded

Operation Round Up exists because of the generosity of Cotton Electric's members.  Every month, more than 12,300 members of the cooperative kick in a little extra change, rounding up their monthly power bill to the nearest dollar.  Contributions ranging from one cent to 99 cents are pooled and provide the funds for the Cotton Electric Charitable Foundation.
