Operation RoundUp ®
Midstate Electric's members have the opportunity to be a part of a program called Operation Roundup® that gives back to their local communities. Funds gathered by the program are allocated for many types of worthy projects in Midstate Electric's service area in Deschutes, Klamath, Lake and Lane Counties. Operation Roundup® is administered by the Midstate Electric Charitable Trust, a committee of directors from Midstate Electric's service area, who serve on a voluntary basis.
The electric bills of those members who choose to participate are "rounded up" to the next higher dollar each month. The extra cents collected from each customer go into the "Round Up" fund. The average participating customer will contribute about 50 cents per month.
Contributions to Operation Roundup® are tax deductible, and we'll note your contribution on your January electric bill each year. We'll keep you informed in your member newsletter and the Ruralite magazine on the activities of the Midstate Electric Charitable Trust, and provide updates on monies awarded. All Operation Roundup® funds stay right here in our communities. Guidelines for awarding this money address special needs for individuals as well as community educational and charitable projects. Political campaigns and issues will not be considered for funding, nor will the funds be used for electric bill relief.
To participate in Operation Roundup®, please call our Customer Service Department or mark the check box on your monthly bill and you will be enrolled in the program.
