Operation Round Up FAQ
Operation Round Up is a voluntary contribution on your electric bill which adds a few pennies each month. The most you could ever donate in a year would be $12, but most members see their donations around $6.00 per year. These pennies are added together from all our participating members, and York Electric’s Trust Board makes grants to members who are facing emergencies and non-profit agencies who are serving needs in our community. Since 2000, York Electric’s members have raised approximately 1.5 million.
If you’re facing a crisis, Operation Round Up may be able to help. To apply, you must submit a completed Operation Round Up application. You may pick up an application at either of our two offices. You may also call us at: 803-684-4247 or 803-548-4244 or write to us at:
York Electric Cooperative, Inc.

York, South Carolina 29745
Our board will review your application at their next quarterly meeting. If you’re approved, a check(s) will be mailed to you made payable to the approved creditor(s).
We make it easy. Sign up by calling our member services department at 803-684-4248 and we’ll simply round your electric bill up to the next highest dollar each month. The extra change – an average of only 50 cents a month or $6 a year – is your contribution to the program. If you wish to discontinue your contributions at any time, simply contact YEC.
Contributions to Operation Round Up are tax deductible. In January and February, your utility bill will have a summary of the contributions you made to Operation Round Up during the previous year.
After each quarterly meeting, our website is updated with the current disposition statement. Also, we periodically publish updates about Operation Round Up in the South Carolina Living magazine.
