South Georgia Technical College Foundation received a $12,000 grant from the Flint Energies Foundation to aid in the funding of 75 General Education Degree Scholarships.
Flint Energies adopted this uniquely simple and rewarding way to enable members to raise money for local charities and service organizations— Operation Round Up®.
The electric cooperative’s members contribute nearly $200,000 annually to the Flint Energies Foundation, which supports worthy causes in the 17 counties it serves.
Operation Round Up is a way for members to add voluntarily to those funds in their own unique way. Participating members allow Flint Energies to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. On average, a member will contribute only about $6 a year. Nearly 45% of Flint’s members have chosen to participate. Donations to Operation Round Up are tax deductible.
