Participating in Operation Round-Up is easy. Each month, Central Texas Electric Co-op "rounds up" the electric bill of participating members to the next highest dollar. For example, a member's monthly bill of $112.73 would be rounded up to $113.00, with the additional 27 cents going to the Operation Round-Up fund. Members can also make a one-time donation and all contributions are tax-deductible.
Grants are awarded to community organizations and families or individuals in need, that are vetted by our Operations Round-Up Board of Directors so you can be sure the funds will be used to make our community better.
You can also enroll by sending an email to email@example.com or by calling 1-800-900-2832.
Grant amounts to date: $180,067.64
All funds are kept separate from CTEC finances, and all funds collected are tax-deductible. All participation is voluntary. However, the more CTEC members that participate, the more difference the program can make in our area. You can also simply make a tax-deductible donation of any amount or have a fixed amount added to your bill each month. Simply call any of the CTEC offices or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
