Operation Round-Up is a community service program funded by the members of Comanche Electric Cooperative. As a participant, your electric bill is rounded up to the nearest dollar each month and the few extra cents go into the Operation Round-Up fund. Your average annual tax-deductible contribution is about $6 per account enrolled.
For example, if your monthly bill is $85.64, it is automatically rounded up to $86.00.
Operation Round-Up was started at Comanche Electric Cooperative in 2003. It is a separate entity from Comanche Electric Cooperative, with a separate board of directors, consisting of representatives from the districts, who are co-op members themselves. Funds are spent locally. It is intended to benefit people and organizations within the Comanche Electric Cooperative service area. Donations go to: Rural Fire Departments, Community Service Projects, Economic Development, Education and Youth Projects, Crisis Centers, Emergency Assistance, such as fires or medical tragedies.
To qualify for funds, the organization or individual must be located within the service area of Comanche Electric Cooperative. Individuals may apply for funds by completing an Individual Application and submitting it to the board of directors. Groups may apply by completing an Organization Application.
Operation Round-Up is a great example of the charitable spirit and generosity that exists among cooperative members to reach out to those within their local community who are in need.
