 Flint Energies Foundation, Inc.

Flint Energies Foundation, Inc. has provided the WRA organization with a grant for $3,000. The grant will be used for repairing the pump house roof and painting the concrete pool and buildings. WRA's many programs will benefit from this generosity. Thank you, Flint Energies!

In 2001, Flint Energies adopted a 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 have allowed the Foundation to award over $2.4 million throughout the 17-county service area since the program’s inception.

Participating members allow Flint Energies to “round-up” their bill to the nearest dollar. For example, if a bill is $92.71, a member will pay $93, with all 29 cents going directly to the Flint Energies Foundation. On average, a member will contribute $6 a year, but never more than $11.88. Donations to Operation Round Up® are tax deductible.

The Flint Energies Foundation Board of Directors disburses all contributions to approved, worthy projects. Member contributions are not used for administration costs. The Foundation is a state-chartered, non-profit, 501(c) foundation.

Flint Energies Foundation Board members include: Chair Kathy Waites, Fort Valley; Vice Chairman Fred Jarrell, Reynolds; Secretary Joanne Hamlin, Lizella; Treasurer Jane Hobbs, Oglethorpe; Charmaine Palmer, Warner Robins; Charles Harrison, Hawkinsville; Connie McCutchen, Midland; Susan Melvin, Warner Robins; Pat Bartness, Warner Robins; George West, Warner Robins; and Rudy Killingsworth, Buena Vista.
