Empowering Minds and Giving Back
EnergyUnited strives to make a difference in the community, and it doesn’t stop with providing power. Our difference is our ambition to help shape not only our communities but the lives of each member in them. Our employees and members generously give their time, money and energy to help those who need it the most. We strive to help our members and youth for generations to come.
Nothing represents EnergyUnited’s core value of community commitment more than the members and employees who help serve through the EnergyUnited Foundation. Since 1996, the EnergyUnited Foundation has provided grants to many community organizations and individuals in need – awarding well over $3 million since the program began. We assist these non-profit organizations and individuals within our 19-county service area through our Operation Round-Up program. In 2019 the foundation awarded nearly $400,000 in grants throughout our community.
During this uncertain time as we deal with the coronavirus, the EnergyUnited Foundation is here to help! The foundation has funding available to provide financial assistance to individuals in need and we will carefully consider every application we receive. We are proud to lend a hand to deserving individuals and non-profit organizations anywhere within our 19-county electric service area.
To receive an application for a non-profit organization please email firstname.lastname@example.org. An application will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

Operation Round-Up is a powerful way for EnergyUnited members to help others in their community by rounding up their monthly bills. The EnergyUnited Foundation is funded entirely by the generosity of these members who give through our Round-Up program. Donations can be as little as a penny or as much as 99 cents, which may not seem like much, but these small amounts add up quickly, making for a greater impact on the lives of other community members in need.
To learn more about the EnergyUnited Foundation or to sign up to donate to Operation Round-Up, please call us at 1-800-522-3793.
EnergyUnited helps future leaders of our community by encouraging our younger generations to share ideas and experiences that will shape our neighbors for a brighter future through partnerships with local educational institutions.
