Operation Round Up is here!
WHAT IS OPERATION ROUND UP?
Each member can choose to round up his/her bill to the nearest dollar each month. If your monthly bill were $80.50, it would round up to $81 for the month. That extra 50 cents would then be deposited into the Operation Round Up account which will then be used for charitable fund raising services for worthwhile community activities.
HOW MUCH WILL I END UP DONATING?
On average members end up donating around $6 for the entire year, but you will never donate more than 99¢ per month or $11.88 for an entire year.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FUNDING?
We have set up a board of trustees composed of 5 community members from around our service area along with a couple of directors from the Jay County REMC Board of Directors. This group will meet once a month to discuss the program and make decisions about the funding. When the program has gained enough funds to start the application process, they will make an application accessible to the public in order for organizations and agencies to apply for these funds. Once the application deadline has lapsed, the group will meet to make decisions about which applications will receive funding and how much they will receive.
WHAT DO I DO IF I WANT TO SERVE ON THIS BOARD?
Contact us at 260-726-7121 and ask for Neil Draper. Our board is currently full, but there is a set amount of time that each member can stay on it. We will need more members as this time frame lapses and if you are interested in serving on the board Neil can take your information and contact you when a spot opens on the board.
