OPERATION ROUND UP
MEMBERS HELPING MEMBERS
For less than $1 per month, you can make a difference in your community. For example, let’s say your electric bill is $82.73. If you participate in Operation Round Up, your bill will be automatically rounded up to $83, with the extra 27 cents going to the Trico Electric Charitable Trust. The most you will donate is about $12 a year, and your donations are tax deductible.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
All donations from Operation Round Up are given to the Trico Electric Charitable Trust, a non-profit organization that determines which Trico Members, schools and organizations receive financial assistance.
Operation Round Up is an easy way to give back to your community because all donations stay local. Through your generosity, we’ve donated over $900,000 since 1996.
