Operation Round-Up

Operation Round-Up®

JCREMC has expanded our commitment to improving the lives of people in our community with Operation Round-Up®, which allows our consumers to contribute to local charitable and non-profit causes. As a member of JCREMC, you have this unique opportunity to make a difference in your community.

Here’s how it works: When monthly JCREMC consumer billing statements are prepared, each bill is rounded up to the nearest whole dollar. For example, a bill of $81.75 would be rounded up to $82. The extra 25 cents is placed in the JCREMC Community Fund to provide financial support for charitable causes and non-profit organizations within the communities served by JCREMC. Recipients of these funds are chosen by an independent advisory board operating on behalf of the JCREMC Community Fund.

The average amount a participating consumer contributes in a year is about $6. A few cents from each member adds up to a significant amount of financial assistance for causes in our community. A little change really does go a long way.
