Blue Ridgve Energy Members Foundation Accepting Grant Applications
The Blue Ridge Energy Members Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2023 grant cycle.
The Foundation is seeking grant applications that reflect tangible economic and community development initiatives from organizations that foster job opportunities and enhance the quality of life.
Additionally, programs, projects, and organizations that are important components of a community’s overall quality of life, emphasizing public safety, awareness, healthcare, emergency services, and self-sufficiency, will also be considered for 2023 funding.
Grants are available for nonprofit organizations serving the Blue Ridge Energy service areas in Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany, Avery, Alexander, Burke, Catawba, and Wilkes counties of North Carolina and Grayson County, Virginia.
The Blue Ridge Energy Members Foundation was formed in 2007 to expand the cooperative’s mission of helping local communities in its service area. Funding for Foundation grants comes from members participating in Blue Ridge Energy’s Operation Round Up® and Operation Round Up Plus® programs. Nearly 28,000 members
round up their monthly electric bill or by donating all or a portion of their capital credits.
Applications are due by July 31 and you can learn more and apply online at BlueRidgeEnergy.com.
