Frequently Asked Questions
What is Operation Round Up?
Operation Round Up is a voluntary program. Participating members have their electric bills rounded up each month to the next whole dollar amount. The portion that is rounded up goes to the TVEC Charitable Foundation. For example, a bill of $75.68 would be rounded up to $76. Then a 32 cent contribution is made to the TVEC Charitable Foundation.
When did the bills begin to be rounded up?
Bills were rounded up beginning in April, 2013.
What if I do not want to participate?
If you do not want to participate in Operation Round Up®, simply contact TVEC and request that your name be removed from the program.
Is the contribution tax deductible?
Yes, and each contribution you make will appear on your monthly statement.
Will TVEC provide a formal tax document for the contributions made to Operation Round Up?
No. While the amount you contribute to Operation Round Up is tax deductible, no documentation is necessary. TVEC will be glad to assist you in retrieving past bills in order to record your contributions.
