The 501(c)3 Cuivre River Electric Community Trust is funded by Cuivre River members through the Operation Round Up program. Members voluntarily pay the Operation Round Up amount that appears on their monthly bills, from a single penny to 99¢ needed to make the payment an even dollar amount.

 

A group of volunteers work to distribute the funds at monthly meetings. Funds may be used for youth, health, education, home weatherization, community services and emergency services.

 

For more information or to obtain a grant application visit www.cuivre.com. Applications are also available at Cuivre River offices. Questions? Call 800.392.3709 for Lonnie Tucker, ext. 230, or Mary Jane Clark, ext. 234.

 
To be eligible, individual, family and organization grant requests must:
  • be from the general Cuivre River area, though applicants do not need to be Cuivre River members,
  • be for an approved purpose, including health, youth, education, weatherization, community groups or emergency service providers,
  • include complete personal or organizational information as specified on each application, and
  • include personal or organization statements indicating why funds are needed at this time and how they will be used.
Trustees meet monthly to award funds Cuivre River members donate by rounding up their electric bill payments to an even amount.
 
Organization and Individual/Family applications are due the last day of each month. Scholarship applications are due October 1 and May 1; scholarships are reviewed at monthly meetings held in November and May.
