In 2012, the Consumers Power Charitable Trust gave $14,910 to non-profits thanks to CPI members and employees who give to the Trust through Operation Round Up.
Participants give an average of $6 a year when their bill is rounded up. Contributions are tax deductible and are shown on your January electric bill.
Since 1993, when the program was started at CPI, $267,297 has been given to non-profit organizations serving needs in CPI’s service area and to individuals. A nine member volunteer committee of CPI members meets three times a year to review applications to the Trust and make funding decisions.
