Local Projects Receive Grants

Operation Round Up Logo

Giving back to the community we serve is a core cooperative principle. The Operation Round Up Program from Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative is a great way for the co-op and its members to give back.

Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative’s Community Trust Board recently met and awarded seven Operation Round Up grants to local non-profit organizations, totaling $12,649.97.

Since the program’s inception in 2002, Todd-Wadena members have raised and donated more than $554,000 for more than 715 local community projects.

Todd-Wadena’s Operation Round Up grant applications are reviewed and recipients selected three times a year by a seven-member volunteer Community Trust Board. The next application deadline is January 15th.
