Grants are available for local volunteer fire departments, youth programs, 4-H, senior citizen programs and other community service projects.  The funds will not be used to pay utility bills or support any political candidate or campaign.

If you or your organization is interested in applying for an Operation Round Up® grant, please visit the Marshall County REMC office or find an application on the REMC website at www.marshallremc.com.  For questions, please contact the REMC office at 574-936-3161 or email Emily Howard, communications specialist at ehoward@marshallremc.com.

Operation Round Up® is a charitable fundraising program where participating member bills are rounded up each month to the next highest dollar.  The rounded up change is then distributed into a separate fund administered by the Marshall County Community Foundation.  Quarterly, the funds are distributed by a board of directors to different organizations within the service territory of Marshall County REMC.
