Carroll EMC

The Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative Foundation awarded 73 local organizations with Impact Grants which totaled over $165,437 for projects that will benefit our communities. The grants were distributed during an afternoon reception at City Station in Carrollton on Thursday, August 16th.

Impact Grants provide assistance to area organizations and projects whose primary purpose is to improve the quality of life for residents in communities within Carroll EMC’s service area. The grants are funded through Operation Round Up, which is a voluntary program that allows Carroll EMC Members to have their electric bills rounded up to the next highest whole dollar.

“I would like to thank everyone for their continued support of Operation Round Up and for taking time to apply,” said Taylor Key, Carroll EMC Foundation Administrator. “When I read the grants each year I am inspired to be a kinder, more giving human. It really makes you see the good that is being done in our communities by these organizations.”

Since its inception in 2001, Operation Round Up has granted $3.3 million to nonprofit organizations and community projects in Carroll EMC’s service area. Funds collected for Operation Round Up are distributed by the Carroll EMC Foundation Board of Trustees. None of the funds are used for administrative costs and 100 percent of the proceeds go back into the community.
