Trico Electric Cooperative, Inc., is pleased to once again announce that it’s accepting applications for the 2015 POWER Grant program. This year’s funding focus is Food and Basic Needs for Children.
Tax-exempt organizations that provide food and basic needs programs to children living in Trico’s service are encouraged to apply. Organizations may apply for grants up to $10,000 and a total of $40,000 will be given. Organizations do not have to be located in Trico’s service area to be eligible; however, the organization must demonstrate that the funds will be used to assist a significant number of children and youth in Trico’s service area.
Grant applications must be received at Trico’s offices by November 7, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. Grants will be evaluated on a competitive basis and awards will be made for a single-year. The 2015 POWER Grants will be awarded in January 2015.
POWER Grant guidelines, applications and additional information are available at Trico’s web site, www.trico.coop. Please contact Romi Carrell Wittman, Director of Marketing Communications, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have questions.
Trico’s POWER Grant program is unique among giving programs because Trico’s employees are the driving force behind the grants process. Each year, Trico’s employees choose the funding focus for the POWER Grant and a committee of employee volunteers makes the final selection.
Since the inception of the POWER Grants program in 2008, Trico has given $240,000 to local non-profits providing critical services to our community.
