Operation Round Up
Your spare change goes a long way when you share it with Union Rural Electric’s Operation Round Up.
By simply “rounding up” your electric bill to the next dollar each month, Union Rural Electric’s members make a big difference with small change in Union County!
Since its inception in 1999, Operation Round Up has processed hundreds of applications, and given out over $500,000 to individuals and groups around Union County.
You are automatically part of Operation Round Up when you sign up for new electric service, unless you let us know otherwise. If for any reason you choose not to participate, simply call us at (937) 642-1826 or (800) 642-1826.
Here’s how it works… Your electric bill is rounded up to the nearest dollar each month. For example, a bill of $82.66 is rounded up to $83. The extra 34 cents goes directly to Union Rural Electric’s Trust Fund, set up specifically to handle Operation Round Up contributions.
Every month, the URE Trust Board reviews applications and selects those that are most deserving.
We hope every Union Rural Electric member will participate in Operation Round Up. When more members contribute, more help can be given!
