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.
