Educational opportunities like these are funded by Georgia’s electric cooperatives and by Coastal Electric Cooperative members who want to invest in local students because they see the value they bring to the community. Funding for foundation scholarships comes from Coastal Electric Cooperative members who allow their electric bills to be rounded up to the next dollar through the Operation Round Up program. Those nickels and dimes are pooled together and invested back into the community through the Coastal Electric Cooperative Foundation.
