Operation Round Up® is a program where participating co-op members allow their bill to be rounded up to the next highest dollar amount. These funds are used for helping fellow cooperative members in need with approved projects. Part of these funds are also used to fund the Operation Round Up Trust Scholarship.
Operation Round Up® is administered by Berkeley Electric Trust, a board of directors made up of community leaders from our service territory who serve on a voluntary basis.Under the educational section of the Trust it is the Trust Board’s aim to provide ten (10) scholarships for children of members/guardians of Berkeley Electric Cooperative. Children of Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s Board and employees, including the Trust’s Board are NOT eligible for the scholarships.
One $1,000 scholarship will be presented to each of the seven (7) high schools served by Berkeley Electric Cooperative. Three (3) $1,000 at large scholarships will be for member’s children who are attending neighboring high schools or home schooled seniors. Scholarships are subject to fund availability.
