Charitable Trust awards grants
The board members who serve on the Capital Electric Cooperative Charitable Trust meet two times a year to review Operation Round Up applications and award grants. In February, Roger Christianson, Jerry Doan, LeAna Hug, Barb Handy-Marchello and Jim McCullough reviewed applications that were submitted by Jan. 31.
The board members awarded seven grants totaling $14,500. Checks were distributed during a presentation ceremony on Feb. 16 at co-op headquarters in Bismarck. The following individuals and organizations received assistance from participating Capital Electric members and the co-op’s Operation Round Up program:
