Giving back is the cooperative way
At Trico, we believe that connection powers our purpose. This connection brings us together as a community – with the understanding that we can do more together than we could do by ourselves. We are proud to support both our Members and community through The Trico Electric Charitable Trust and the Trico Foundation.
Each year, the Trust funds $70,000 in POWER Grants, which help non-profit organizations in Trico’s service area. You can help us give back to the community by participating in Operation Round Up. When you participate in Operation Round Up, Trico will round up your monthly bill to the next dollar. Your contribution goes to worthy causes in our service areas and is tax deductible.
Sign up for Operation Round Up by December 20, 2021 for a chance to win up to $100 in bill credits. Click here to register.
The Trico Foundation is a non-profit foundation that is funded through Capital Credit Retirements that are gifted or unclaimed. In 2020, the Foundation awarded over $400,000 in scholarships to 84 students. Since 1983 the Foundation has awarded over $2.7 million in scholarships benefiting over 760 students.
From sponsoring the scoreboard at a high school football stadium to taking donations for the local food bank, Trico invests in local communities where you live and work. Trico is a year-round donation site for the community food bank. Our employees recently held a food drive for the Marana Community Food Bank, raising $350 and collecting a total of 370 pounds of food. Trico matched employee donations.
“We appreciate your partnership in helping to alleviate hunger for our communities. You are true hunger heroes!” said Brittany Taft, Community Events Manager for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
Currently, employees are planning a toy drive and a blood drive. Follow us on social media to learn more about these and other community events. Like us on Facebook at facebook.com/tricoelectric. Follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/TricoElectricAZ and on Instagram at instagram.com/TricoElectricAZ.
