Successful Education grant recipients included the Grundy County R-V School District, Galt and Humphreys; Trenton R-IX School District, Trenton; Pleasant View R-VI School District, Trenton; Laredo R-VII School District, Laredo; Princeton R-V School District, Princeton; North Mercer R-III School District, Mercer; South Harrison R-II School District, Bethany and North Harrison R-III School District, Eagleville. Two rural development projects were approved including the North Central Missouri Children’s Advocacy Center, Trenton and the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department in Bethany.

Since 2005, the GEC Community Foundation, Inc. has awarded 342 grants totaling $218,679.98 to deserving schools and community organizations. The Foundation assists qualifying schools and organizations with grant monies in the areas of education, health and rural development. The funds are open to eligible entities within Grundy Electric Cooperative’s 12 county service area which includes Harrison, Mercer and Grundy counties and portions of Linn, Livingston, Daviess, Gentry, Putnam, and Sullivan counties in Missouri and portions of Ringgold, Wayne and Decatur counties in Iowa.

The Foundation, which is operated on a volunteer basis, is primarily funded through the Operation Round-Up Program. This program allows GEC members and customers of the Public Water Supply District Number 1 of Grundy County to voluntarily “round up” their utility bill to the next even dollar. The PWSD Round-Up funds are disbursed solely to projects located in Grundy County. For an average of $6 per year, participating patrons assist in funding local community projects.

The next grant application deadline is January 31, 2014. Qualified applicants must be a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization or other eligible entity and may apply for a grant by completing a grant application with supporting information. Grant applications are available at www.grundyec.com or by calling Grundy Electric Cooperative at (660) 359-3941 or Toll Free 1-800-279-2249, extension 23 or 33.
