Program Operation:            

Operation RoundUp allows Wake Electric members to roundup their electric bill to the next highest dollar and donate that amount to the program. For example, as an Operation RoundUp contributor, if your bill is $91.85, your bill would be rounded up to $92.00 and the extra 15 cents would be donated to Operation RoundUp.

Contributing members give an average of 50 cents per month or $6.00 per year. The maximum amount that a member would contribute in a year’s time would be $11.88.

Each quarter, the board of directors for the program’s administrative body, the Wake Electric Foundation board, meets to determine who will be awarded funds.
