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. This collection of small change has had a big impact. Cotton Electric Charitable Foundation has awarded or pledged grants totaling $1,546,428.55 since the foundation was established.

A total of $11,157.43 in CECF grants were issued or pledged in the first quarter of 2024.
