Grants and Awards
Operation Round Up Grant Awarded to Page Free Clinic for PPE and Disinfectant Supplies
The Page Free Clinic was awarded a $1,900 grant in July 2020 through Shenandoah Valley Electric Co-op’s Operation Round Up. This is a program where SVEC customers volunteer to round their monthly bill up to the next dollar amount and that change is put in operation round up. For example, if your bill is $50.51, it is rounded up to $51 and the .49 cents is added to the Operation Round Up fund. Those funds are subsequently submitted to local non-profits who apply for grants – there is an approval process and we were selected. The purpose of this grant request was to assist with personal protective equipment (PPE) and disinfectant supplies to help the clinic operate safely during the pandemic.

Operation Round Up Grant Awarded to Page Free Clinic to Help with Our Dental Services
Page Free Clinic received a $3,400 grant in January 2019 from Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) to help with our dental services. The funds were from Operation Round Up (ORU) which is the fundraising branch of SVEC.
Essentially your electric bill is rounded up to the nearest dollar each month, if you chose to participate. The additional change is put into the ORU funds at SVEC. Then, local non-profits can apply for grants through the SVEC to receive funding for community needs.
The maximum annual contribution to the fund is $11.88 per SVEC member. So, a small investment on your part can yield high returns for the community! Join Operation Round Up today!
