  • Nonprofits: Apply for Funds from The Power of Change

    • Share:
    Fredericksburg, Va. - Rappahannock Electric Cooperative’s (REC) The Power of Change program is ready to support local charities and non-profit organizations. Applications for funding can be submitted now through 5 p.m. on Aug. 9.
    Since 2008, The Power of Change has helped dozens of community groups by funding programs that feed the hungry, enhance performing arts programs, provide crisis support services and more throughout REC’s service territory. The program is funded by REC member-owners, who voluntarily round up their electric bill to the next whole dollar each month, contribute a set amount each month or make a onetime donation.
    “REC employees live in the same communities as our member-owners, and we all see the challenges nonprofits face to fund their important services,” said Matt Faulconer, REC’s manager of external affairs. “The Power of Change is just one way REC is proud to make a difference.”
    Applications are available online at www.thepowerofchange.org. The website also provides guidelines for funding and a list of organizations who have previously been awarded funding.  
    REC provides electric service to over 169,000 connections in parts of 22 Virginia counties. With its general office in Fredericksburg, Va., the Cooperative operates and maintains more than 17,000 miles of power lines through its service area, which ranges from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay. For more information about REC, please visit www.myrec.coop. Follow REC on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
