Your spare change (about $6 a year) can help recent high school graduates continue their education.

Join Operation Round Up! You allow NAEC to “round up” your bill to the nearest dollar. That money then funds college scholarships.

By enrolling in Operation Round Up®, North Arkansas Electric Cooperative members prove that small change can make a big difference in our communities! Members volunteer to have their monthly electric bill "rounded up" to the nearest dollar. Donations are placed in a trust and administered by an independent board made up of community leaders. The volunteer board evaluates all requests and determines how Operation Round Up monies are distributed. Funds have been awarded as college scholarships, grants to community organizations and disaster assistance. Learn more at www.naeci.com/operation-round-up. 22
