Impact Grant offered by Operation Round-Up

Web posted February 12, 2019
Crow Wing Power Community Trust (Operation Round-Up) is offering an Impact Grant of up to $12,000. The purpose of the Impact Grant will be to give a boost to a unique project/program, organization or community and insure its success.

Applicants must show that this one time grant would have a major impact for their project, organization or community. The organization needs to show that they have a history of success, or if a start-up project, the business plan must be strong and show large community support. Projects that focus on human health and well-being will be given additional consideration.

Operation Round-Up is funded by participating members of Crow Wing Power who allow the cooperative to round up their electric bills to the nearest whole dollar. The additional change is pooled and distributed quarterly to local community programs. To qualify for an application, contact Char or Jolene at Crow Wing Power, 218-829-2827 or 1-800-648-9401. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2019.
