NEW ORU 2022 long FINAL-01.png

At Co-Mo Connect, we are always striving to find ways to give back to our community and make a positive impact on the lives of those we serve. Today, we are excited to introduce you to an easy and powerful way to help contribute to that effort through a program called Operation Round Up!

In the past, this program was only open to our electric members, but you can now participate as a Co-Mo Connect subscriber as well! 

What is Operation Round Up?

Operation Round Up is a voluntary program where we “round up” your monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar. For example, if your bill is $74.65, it will be rounded up to $75.00. The extra 35 cents goes directly into a community fund overseen by the Co-Mo Cares Board dedicated to supporting local charitable organizations, emergency services, educational initiatives, community projects, and more.


Why Participate?

Minimal Contribution, Maximum Impact

On average, the contribution is just 50 cents per month! However, when combined with contributions from other cooperative members, it results in substantial funding for local causes.

Community Support: 

Your small change can make a big difference. Funds raised through Operation Round Up help provide vital services and support to those in need within our community.

Transparency and Accountability: 

Every penny collected goes back to our community. We provide regular updates on how the funds are being used, so you can see the positive impact your contributions are making.

Real Stories, Real Impact: 


Thanks to members and subscribers like you, Operation Round Up has provided $693,838.32 in scholarships, $752,130.43 to charitable organizations, and $655,629.43 to individuals and families in need in our community since the start of the program back in the 90s! 

A recent example of these funds going to worthy causes in the community happened just last year when The Co-Mo Cares board of trustees gave $3,000 to enGAGE Mobility’s effort to help a family local to Tipton get a much-needed wheelchair van!

Together, we can create a ripple effect of generosity and support that reaches far and wide in our community. Join us in making a difference – one penny at a time!

You can also participate in Operation Round Up Plus! 

Co-Mo unveiled the Operation Round Up Plus program at its 73rd Annual Meeting in May 2012. Members who would like to give a little bit extra each month above and beyond the “rounded-up” amount (see below) can do so by sending just one email. Email and send your name, Co-Mo account number, address and phone number in the body of an email, along with the amount you would like to donate each month. The recommended amount is $2.

With your help, we can meet the needs of the Co-Mo community.
