Your Pennies Make a Big Difference with Operation Round Up

Since 1994, members of Wright-Hennepin (WH) have donated more than $3.3 million dollars to local charities through the Operation Round Up program. The program rounds up electric bills to the nearest dollar, and that tax deductible amount is put in a fund that is used for donations to local charities.

All members, residential and commercial, are automatically enrolled in the program. The rounded amount is shown on every electric statement. At the end of the year, your total tax deductible contribution for the year appears on your end-of-the-year statement.

The donations are placed in a trust fund that is managed by a board that WH’s board of directors appointed. The trust board evaluates funding requests on a quarterly basis. Eligible programs must demonstrate a need that benefits the overall community.
