Round Up Foundation funds are generated by LPEA consumers rounding up their electric bills to the next higher dollar amount (average of 50 cents/month, $6.00/year).
A local volunteer board reviews applications, determines need and allocates funds on a monthly basis.
No time commitment is required on your part.
Funding helps many non-profit organizations and special community projects in LPEA's service area. Organizations funded include:
|Big Brothers/Big Sisters||Durango Children's Museum||Manna Soup Kitchen|
|Folk West||Bayfield Public Library||TARA Historical Society|
|Humane Society||Space Camp||Ruby Sisson Memorial Library|
|Camp Cascade||Habitat for Humanity||Tri-County Head Start|
|Hospice of Mercy||Boys & Girls Club||Project Merry Christmas|
Your donations are tax deductible and stay right here in our communities.
Since 1996, nearly $700,000 has been donated to non-profit organizations. Individuals have received over $163,000 for one-time emergency needs in La Plata and Archuleta Counties.
