Fredericksburg, Va. — The Power of Change from Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) is now accepting applications from local nonprofits seeking funding to support their communities. Across REC’s service territory, numerous nonprofits could benefit from funding, and The Power of Change is the perfect opportunity to help meet their needs.
“Over 30,000 REC member-owners round up their monthly electric bill or make other monetary donations to The Power of Change,” said Casey Hollins, Managing Director – Communications and Public Relations. “Twice each year, those donations are awarded to local nonprofits so that they can accomplish their mission and support their community.”
The Power of Change has awarded funds to a variety of nonprofits, including crisis support services, community reading programs, volunteer fire departments, environmental programs, performing arts centers and organizations that help feed families.
“The funds donated by REC’s member-owners go right back into their community, allowing them to make a difference where they live and work,” added Hollins. “We encourage nonprofits to apply today so the funds raised by REC members can make a difference for your organization.”
