Operation Round Up Online Application
Thank you for your interest in Operation Round Up and the Irwin EMC Foundation. Operation Round Up is a program funded by the voluntary contributions of Irwin EMC customers to the Irwin EMC Foundation. Contributions are made to the Foundation when participants elect to have their monthly electric bill rounded up to the next dollar. Charitable donations are made quarterly by the foundation to worthy projects and needs within the six-county Irwin EMC service area. Organizations can apply to the foundation’s 10 member board of directors, who will award funds based on the worthiness of each application and available funds. These organizations may also apply on behalf of individuals residing within the six-county area. One hundred percent of funds collected are returned to the community through donations from the foundation.
In completing your application, please consider the following criteria:
- Applications must be for special projects or needs. Applications for contributions to an organization’s general fund will not be accepted.
