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 three key categories that aim to do the following:
- Support Education—Supporting education initiatives, particularly those related to science, technology, engineering, math, and trades, while emphasizing support for those in greatest need
- Meet Basic Human Needs—Providing assistance in accessing food, warmth, and basic medical and social needs, as well as issues related to children and those issues that arise from disasters
- Promote Community Vitality—Supporting programs, projects and organizations that are important contributors to quality of life, while emphasizing public safety and self-sufficiency; providing support to veterans and troops
The CoServ Charitable Foundation will not consider requests for general operating funds, capital campaigns or support for salaries. CCF prefers requests for programmatic needs. Projects to be funded should be within the CoServ service area.
As part of our mission to meet basic human needs, CCF partners with social service agencies throughout our territory to assist Members and Customers going through difficult financial times. Scroll through the interactive map below to find a social service agency that can serve your needs.
