“Small change that changes lives” is the foundation on which the Operation Round Up program was built. Members who agree to participate allow Alfalfa Electric Cooperative to “round up” their monthly electric bill to the next highest dollar. For example, a bill of $55.75 would be rounded up to $56.00, with the additional $0.25 going to the Operation Round Up fund.
The amount “rounded-up” on each participating customer’s bill averages a total of $6 per year. The monthly billing statement shows how much is being donated each month, along with a year-end statement. The amount contributed to Operation Round Up is tax-deductible as tax laws permit.
Operation Round is an opt-out program with all Alfalfa Electric Cooperative members being automatically enrolled when they become a member. Members can opt-out at any time by simply contacting their local district office.
