|A New Opportunity to Support Your Community|
The VEC Community Fund is a program recently adopted by our Board of Directors to strengthen the community by supporting non-profit organizations in VEC service territory.
Members can participate in the program by rounding up to the next highest dollar on their electric bills. This small change can make a big difference to local, worthy causes. To enroll, check the box on the left side of your payment voucher and return it to VEC. For more information, visit our community page or contact us at 1-800-VEC-COOP (832-2667).
|VEC Awards First Community Fund Grants to Local Organizations|
In the summer of 2014, the Board of Directors of Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) adopted a program called the Community Fund. The Fund allows members to donate money to help local nonprofit organizations that support community development and economic security in VEC’s service territory. This concept underscores the cooperative principle of member helping member.
In February 2015, the Community Fund Committee, comprised of both directors and employees, met to review applications and make the first awards. An award of $500 was granted to Capstone Community Action in Morrisville to provide energy assistance grants to cooperative members. Another in-kind award of a computer and router was approved for the Johnson Historical Society.
