All we need is your change to make a big difference.
Check "Yes" on your next statement and help support our community through Operation Round-Up.
Giving back to the community is a big part of what Brider Valley Electric is all about, and we take that role very seriously. We encourage our members to participate in the Operation Round-Up program by simply checking YES on their electric bills. Operation Round-Up is a painless way for all our members to help raise funds that will be used for various community needs throughout Bridger Vally Electric's service territory.
Around the country, Operation Round-Up has raised money for things like the Life Flight program, scholarships, members in crisis situations, and community projects that benefit everyone. The funds collected are used locally for these and many other types of needs.
Rounding your electric bill up the next whole dollar and donating those extra cents to the Operation Round-UP program is easy and painless. For just pennies a month, you can join other bridge Valley Electric members in supporting vital needs and services in our communities. And help out is what Bridger Valley Electric is all about. Check Yes!
The program gathers voluntary contributions from participating co-op members by rounding up their monthly bills to the next dollar. For example, your bill of $52.73 would automatically be rounded up to $53.00, with the additional 27 cents going to the Round-Up fund. The most a member could contribute for any single meter per year would be $11.88. The average contribution per meter is $6.00 annually.
Donations are tax-deductible and participants are sent a summary of their yearly contributions early in the year.
All Operation Round-Up donations are placed in a trust and administered by BVEA's Board of Directors. All areas of Bridger Valley Electric's service territory are represented on the board.
The Board receives and evaluates all requests, determines who receives the funding and how all Operation Round-Up monies are distributed. The funds are to help the less fortunate, and charitable organizations in need, and cannot be used for political purposes.
