That extra change is then granted to non-profit, charitable organizations that provide humanitarian, educational, or community development services within the cooperative’s 26-county service area. Since 1999, more than $3.8 million in grants have been awarded to charitable and community organizations to better the lives of residents in local communities. The People Fund awarded $228,288 in grants in 2020.
