POWER GRANTS


TRICO POWER GRANTS

Twice a year, the Trico Electric Charitable Trust, which is funded through Operation Round Up, awards non-profit organizations up to $10,000 each. Grants are awarded in May and December of each year to non-profits providing critical services in southern Arizona. The proceeds are used to assist community organizations, schools, veteran’s groups, first responders, and food banks. Since 2008, Trico’s POWER Grants program has provided $735,000 in funding to local non-profit organizations in our community. Contribute to Operation Round Up.
