Nobles Cooperative Electric initiated "Operation Round Up" in 2001. This program is designed to provide financial assistance to worthwhile activities in the cooperative's service area. This program aims to make a difference with small change donated by the members on a voluntary basis.
Individuals volunteer to serve as directors for the Nobles-Murray Rural Electric Trust Board. This volunteer board meets twice a year to review applications and to decide which causes to support.
Currently, over $330,000 has been awarded to local organizations.
