Good¢ents Grants Awarded in Aug 2019

The Good¢ents Board of Trustees met in August. Five applications were reviewed, and three grants totaling $10,386 were awarded. Here’s a summary of these recent grants:

  • Alaska Health Fair:  $6,787 grant to be applied towards the purchase of health screening equipment.
  • Fairbanks Rescue Mission:  $1,599 grant to purchase a paper-folding machine.
  • Northern Alaska Environmental Center:  $2,000 grant to upgrade lighting fixtures.

All grants from the Good¢ents Foundation are awarded to nonprofit organizations within GVEA’s service area. Applications are reviewed quarterly in February, May, August and November by a volunteer board of trustees. The next application deadline is October 31, 2019. Applications and more information about the program can be found online here.

Good¢ents is funded by the generous members of Golden Valley Electric Association. Since the program began in 2011, GVEA members have funded grants totaling $1,022,236.

Thank you to all of the members who voluntarily “round up” their monthly billing statement to the next dollar. The cents you contribute is greatly appreciated and really makes a difference within the communities GVEA serves.

2019 Board Election Results

On Thursday, June 13, 2019, judges from GVEA’s Election Committee certified the results of the 2019 Board of Directors election. Here are the results:

  • District 5 (primarily serving North Pole):  Incumbent Chris Bunch retains his seat.
    • GVEA’s bylaws state that a 10% return of valid ballots of the total membership of each voting district is required. District 5’s returned ballots did not meet this requirement; therefore, the current director, Chris Bunch, is considered elected and will serve another three-year term (his third). The individual who ran against Chris Bunch was Mark Oppe.
    • Of the 6,442 ballots issued, only 580 valid ballots were cast, which constitutes a 9% return.
  • District 6 (primarily serving Delta Junction):  Incumbent John Sloan retains his seat.
    • John Sloan ran unopposed and will be appointed by the board to serve another 3-year term at their June 24 meeting.

Also, at this June's meeting, the board will accept the 2019 election results and elect officers.

Next year, directors for District 1 (Dave Messier), District 2 (Tom DeLong) and District 3 (Rick Schikora) will be up for election.
