CoServ Charitable Foundation
The CoServ Charitable Foundation (CCF) set out in 2004 to make a difference and improve lives in North Texas and beyond. Since then, the organization has awarded nearly $16 million to nonprofit organizations and education foundations.
CCF grants help fill food pantries, assist with utility bills, buy equipment for first responders, provide a warm meal and give hope to someone escaping human trafficking. CCF has become a critical part of the North Texas nonprofit network, providing funds that help people when they need it most.

CoServ Charitable Foundation
The CoServ Charitable Foundation (CCF) has two separate funds: Operation Roundup and the Unrestricted Fund.
The majority of the grants CCF funds come from Operation Roundup (ORU), where CoServ Members and Customers roundup their bill to the nearest dollar. ORU funds are awarded to nonprofits within CoServ's service territory so they benefit local organizations in your community.
The Unrestricted Fund is funded by the generosity of CoServ Employees, who donate via payroll deductions. CCF fundraisers, such as the annual golf tournament and clay shoot, also raise money for the Unrestricted Fund. The Unrestricted Fund awards grants to organizations outside CoServ's service territory.

CCF is an independent, nonprofit organization with its own Board of Directors who are appointed by the CoServ Electric Board of Directors. Salaries for CCF administrators and staff are funded entirely by CoServ so that CCF can focus on providing donations, resources and manpower where it can do the most good.
CCF initiatives are divided into three key categories:
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 our veterans and troops
Supporting education initiatives, particularly those related to science, technology, engineering, math, and trades, while emphasizing support for those in greatest need
The CoServ Charitable Foundation will not consider requests for general operating funds, capital campaigns, office rent or support for salaries. CCF prefers requests for programmatic needs. Projects to be funded should be within the CoServ service area.
