TCEC Foundation


Tri-County Electric Charity Foundation

Operation Round Up is a community support program where participating members “round up” their monthly electric bill to the next dollar. The difference is then given to support a variety of charitable, and community related programs and events.

How Operation Round Up Works

This voluntary community support program enables member owners to raise money for their local community. Tri-County Electric Cooperative rounds up the electric bills of participating member owners to the nearest dollar amount. For example, if a bill is $92.73, a member will pay $93, with all 27 cents going directly to the Tri-County Electric Charity Foundation. On average, a member owner’s account will contribute less than $6 a year, but no more than $11.88. As we have said, participation is optional. If you do not wish to participate in our Round Up program, simply contact our office at 660-457-3733 and one of our friendly office staff will remove your account from Round up.

Donations to Operation Round Up are tax-deductible and donations will be printed on your monthly billing statement.

501(c) organizations within the Cooperative’s service territory may apply for funding from Tri-County Electric Charity Foundation. The guidelines and application processes are available on our website. If you have any

questions regarding the process or want an application for your 501(c) organization, please visit our website,
