Round Up® Program To Begin in January

Operation Round UpSuwannee Valley Electric Cooperative will begin Operation Round Up® in January, when the bills of participating members will be rounded up to the nearest dollar. Money raised through the program will fund grants to benefit students in local schools.

While an individual member’s donation amounts to pocket change each month, the program allows SVEC to collect an average of $6 for each participating member annually. Together, those donations add up.

Once donations have been collected, the teachers from local schools will be able to submit applications for classroom projects or supplies.

Members who do not wish to have their bills rounded up must call the cooperative at 800-447-4509 and let us know.
