Operation Round Up
As a voluntary program, Santee Electric relies on consumer
participation to ensure the success of Operation Round Up.
When a member participates, his/her average contribution is
about 50 cents per month, totaling around $6 on an annual basis. It
may seem like small change, but if every consumer took part in the
program, we could raise more than $250,000 a year to help worthy
community projects in Williamsburg, Georgetown, Florence and
Here's How It Works
Operation Round Up is just what the name implies. Each
month, Santee Electric simply "rounds up" the electric bills of
participating consumers to the next highest dollar.
Donations are tax deductible.
All Operation Round Up donations are placed in trust and
administered by an independent Board of Directors called the Santee
Electric Trust. The Trust is made up of community leaders who serve
on a voluntary basis. The Board receives and evaluates all
requests, determines who receives funding and how all Operation
Round Up monies will be distributed. Typically, the funding is used
to address crucial community needs such as housing and medical
care-but is not limited to these categories. Operation Round Up
funds may not be used for political purposes.
