SPECIAL NOTE (DECEMBER 2015): For more than a decade, the CoServ Charitable Foundation has played an active role in making a difference in our community and the world. Each year, the CCF Board of Directors conducts a planning session to maximize the impact that can be made. As a result of the most recent planning session, the board has decided to update grant guidelines that have been in place since 2008. Once complete, the updated guidelines and application form will be posted on this site. If you have questions or need more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 2004, the CoServ Charitable Foundation (CCF) was created by two driving forces that intersected—the establishment of Operation Roundup®, a cooperative initiative to improve the quality of life for residents within our communities; and a desire by CoServ’s Employees to be more directly involved in how CoServ gives back to the community. The majority of CCF funding comes from you, our Members and Customers, and from Employee payroll donations, fundraisers and other events.
CCF is an independent, nonprofit organization. The CCF Board of Directors has been appointed by CoServ Electric. Board members and CoServ Employees do not receive financial compensation for their CCF efforts. CCF's focus is on providing donations, resources and manpower where we can do the most good for the communities we serve. Currently these initiatives are divided into four key categories:
- Community Service—Programs, projects and organizations that are important components of a community’s overall quality of life, with an emphasis on public safety, healthcare, self-sufficiency and basic human needs. This includes financial assistance for social service agencies dedicated to assisting CoServ Members and Customers in need pay their energy bills, and helping first responders keep our communities safe.
- Education and Youth—Programs and projects that promote youth wellness; programs designed to combat critical social problems affecting our youth, with an emphasis on children and teens at risk.
- Environment—Programs that promote recycling and natural resource preservation; community-based environmental quality education programs.
- Disaster Relief—Programs and projects to provide disaster relief and food, clothing, shelter, medical care, clean-up and repairs/reconstruction in an emergency following an accident, severe storm or other causes.
