Through participation in Operation Round Up, the average contribution per customer is about 50 cents a month, or six dollars per year. Small change to the individual perhaps, but the thousands of dollars the program generates mean a big difference to the people in our service area.
Who Decides Where The Money Goes?
All Operation Round Up donations are placed in a trust and administered by an independent Board of Directors called the Niobrara Valley Electric Trust. The Trust is made up of community leaders who serve on the Board on a voluntary basis. It is the Trust Board who receive the funds, evaluate all requests for funds and decide how they will be distributed. Typically, the funding will be used to address crucial needs such as medical care, emergency shelter, and life saving equipment, but it is not limited to these categories.
Applications will be available at the Niobrara Valley Electric office. Interested
parties can contact the Corporation office at (402) 336-2803 or (800)
967-1987 for information regarding the Round Up Program or to receive an application.
The application must be submitted to the Trust Board by a member of Niobrara Valley
