Operation RoundUp allows Roanoke Cooperative member-owners to “round up” their electric bill to the next highest dollar and donate that amount to the program. For example, if your bill for the month of April was $11.85, you could round it up to $12.00 and donate the extra 15 cents to Operation RoundUp. It has been estimated that a member-owner contributes an average of 50 cents per month or $6.00 per year. The maximum amount that a member-owner can contribute in a year’s time would be $11.88. Each quarter, the board of directors for the program’s administrative body, the Roanoke Care Trust, meets to determine who will be awarded funds. The funds will be given primarily to organizations that are serving either the health, safety, educational, or recreational needs of citizens within our service area.
