Heartland members can help those in need with our Operation Round Up program. The program has been established so that Heartland consumer-members have a quick and easy method of making financial contributions to non-profit organizations that help people throughout rural eastern and southeast Kansas.
Once enrolled in the program (members are enrolled by default), members’ electric bills are rounded up to the next dollar. The additional amount, which will range from 1 cent to 99 cents each month, is collected and pooled into a fund for distribution to non-profit organizations that promote the health and well-being of eastern Kansans. All funds collected through Operation Round Up are donated to non-profit 501(c) (3) charitable organizations that provide food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education, and other direct services for those in need.
Funds collected through the Operation Round Up program are administered by a panel of volunteers selected by the Heartland Rural Electric Cooperative Board of Directors, and come from throughout Heartland’s 12-county service area. The Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas provides assistance in managing the Operation Round Up contributions and disbursing funds.
Applications for the 2021 Operation Round Up grants are now closed.
