Operation Round Up®
A Voluntary, member funded program supporting local, nonprofit organizations in HILCO's service area.
HILCO Electric Cooperative members join other electric cooperatives around the nation in participating in Operation Round Up®. Operation Round Up® is a voluntary program in which we "round up" your residential electric bill each month to the nearest dollar amount to provide funding for local community and charitable organizations in our service area.
Every month, the additional pennies, nickels and dimes are added to a special fund to help organizations in our service area. A committee, representing all seven districts in HILCO's service area, will be responsible for deciding where the funds are to be allocated. Once the committee allocates the funds, selected community and charitable organizations will receive the proceeds. We will keep you informed on how much is collected and where the funds are distributed.
If your monthly residential electric bill were $67.43, for example, your bill would be rounded to $68.00. You will never give more than 99 cents a month and your total annual contribution averages about $6 per year. This doesn't sound like a lot of money, but with everyone participating, it can make a difference to those in need. Click here to sign up
