As a locally owned and operated electric cooperative, Mitchell EMC holds steadfast to Cooperative Principles such as having “concern for our communities.”
The Operation Round Up program is made possible by Mitchell EMC consumers just like you. By participating in Operation Round Up your monthly electric bill is rounded up to the next highest dollar. This extra change is deposited in the Mitchell Electric Charitable Fund to help worthwhile projects and programs in our communities. More than $1,000,000 has been returned to our communities so far.
Any 501c3 organization in Baker, Dougherty, Mitchell and Worth Counties is eligible to apply for funding. Organizational applicants must complete an application and provide supporting documentation. A committee of member-advisors meets quarterly to review the applications and make disbursements. Organizations may submit an application for only one deadline within a 12-month period. Mitchell EMC absorbs any administrative costs, therefore, 100% of your donation goes to make life better for area citizens. You will receive written notification as to the status of your application after the committee has met. Your donation to Operation Round Up is tax deductible.
NINE (9) copies of the COMPLETE application must be submitted to:
