Pennies for Purpose is a program that helps our neighbors and communities for pennies each month. It is funded by Blue Grass Energy members who round up their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar; and provides funding to charitable causes across our 23-county service area.
Once a member enrolls, the average yearly contribution would be about $6. For example, a $64.89 bill would round up to an even $65.
Once Pennies for Purpose is funded, charitable causes will have the opportunity to apply for donations.
We still have a few months to continue supporting the American Cancer Society but it is time to start thinking about 2019.
As in the past, we welcome your suggestions for a charity you would like to see Blue Grass Energy partner with next year. Ideally, the organization would benefit our entire service area and align with our purpose of making life better, the cooperative way.
Blue Grass Energy will award ten $1,500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors within their service area. These scholarships will be awarded in a random drawing following the business meeting portion of our Annual Meeting on June 6, 2019. The meeting will be held at the Keeneland Entertainment Center. Registration will begin at 4:30 p.m. with the business meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m.
