Operation Round Up
Your change can make a huge difference.
OPERATION ROUND UP
Operation Round-Up is a community service program funded by the members of Wharton County Electric Cooperative, Inc. All participating residential and small commercial members’ bills are rounded up to the nearest dollar, and the extra change goes into the Wharton County Electric Cooperative Charitable Fund which is distributed to local non-profit organizations. The average annual tax-deductible contribution is about $6 per account enrolled.
For example, if a monthly bill is $92.56, it is automatically rounded up to $93.00.
Operation Round-Up was started in 2003 and is a separate entity from WCEC. Funds are spent locally and are intended to benefit 501(c)(3) organizations within the cooperative service area. Since 2003, over $300,000 has been given to local non-profits through Operation Round Up.

OPERATION ROUND UP DISTRIBUTION
Funds from Operation Round Up are collected into the WCEC Charitable Fund and then distributed throughout the year to local 501(c)3 organizations. Non-profit organizations must apply for funding each year. The application process includes proof of 501(c)3 status and an explanation of how the requested funds serve our community.
