Ohio County joins in on REMC grants

Since 1939, Southeastern Indiana REMC has been committed to improving the quality of life in our service area.
Operation Round Up is a voluntary charitable fundraising program for Southeastern Indiana REMC members.   If you participate, your bill will be rounded up to the next whole dollar each month.   
Those extra cents are deposited into a separate fund.   A board of trustees reviews grant applications for community projects. 
Any non-profit 501(C) organization that serves communities within the Southeastern Indiana REMC service area is eligible to apply for grants from Operation Round Up. 
New members are automatically enrolled in Operation Round Up.   If you do not wish to participate, please call us at 800-737-4111 to opt-out of the program.
