Operation Round Up

What is Operation Round Up?

  • Heartland members can help those in need with our Operation Round Up program
  • The program gives Heartland consumer-members a quick and easy method of making financial contributions to non-profit organizations that help people throughout rural eastern and southeast Kansas

How Does It Work?

  • Members are enrolled in Operation Round Up by default
  • Each month, members’ electric bills are rounded up to the next dollar
  • The additional amount is collected and pooled into a fund for distribution to non-profit organizations that promote the health and well-being of eastern Kansans
  • This amount will range from 1 cent to 99 cents each month

Operation Round Up Grants

  • 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
