Roundup for Safety is a community safety program sponsored by the Co-op and voluntarily funded by members who “round up” their monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar. The extra money provides grant funds for locally based nonprofit safety projects.
“Rounding up” only costs each member about $6 per year, yet it makes a huge impact on our community. Since 1997, the Roundup for Safety program has awarded more than $4.5M in support of over 1,300 community safety projects.
- Please note that you must apply for funding before beginning a community safety project.
- Please read through all of the Roundup for Safety guidelines before applying for funding.
