Nonprofits: Apply for Funds from The Power of Change

REC's The Power of Change program is ready to support local charities and non-profit organizations. Applications for funding can be submitted now through 5 p.m. on Aug. 9.

Since 2008, The Power of Change has helped dozens of community groups by funding programs that feed the hungry, enhance performing arts programs, provide crisis support services and more throughout REC's service territory. The program is funded by REC
member-owners, who voluntarily round up their electric bill to the next whole dollar each month, contribute a set amount each month or make a onetime donation.

"REC employees live in the same communities as our member-owners, and we all see the challenges nonprofits face to fund their important services," said Matt Faulconer, REC's manager of external affairs. "The Power of Change is just one way REC is proud to make a difference."

Applications are available here on REC's website. The are also guidelines for funding and a list of organizations who have previously been awarded funding.
