Local organizations and commu- nity projects can apply for grants through Kay Electric Community


Foundation 2015 Third Quarter Applications Due Oct. 2 & Fourth Quarter Applications Due Jan. 4, 2016


Kay Electric Cooperative be- lieves in the power of working together to make good things happen. Concern for Communi- ty is cooperative principle num- ber seven and states, “While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sus- tainable development of their communities through policies accepted by their members.” This principle is in full swing and north central Oklahoma organizations and community leaders can call upon KEC members to lend a hand. KEC has a new Foundation, the Kay Electric Community Foundation Inc. The Foundation is primar- ily funded by KEC’s new KUP program. KUP allows KEC members, if they so choose, to have their monthly bill rounded up to the nearest dollar and the funds will then be dispersed to the Foundation. These contri- butions will be used for chari- table and educational purposes in north central Oklahoma – KEC’s service territory and the communities within it.


The KEC Board of Directors Marland Substation 2


appointed five KEC members to the foundation board. These five members are responsible for the organizational practices and establishing policy for the Foundation. Future board members will come from KEC’s membership. The Foundation Board will meet quarterly to review applications and award grants to the chosen appli- cants.
