The Good¢ents Board of Trustees met in May. Five applications were reviewed, and two grants totaling $16,000 were awarded. Here’s a summary of these recent grants:
- Fairbanks Resource Agency: $8,000 grant to be applied towards their Assistive Technology Project.
- Nenana Tortella Council on Aging: $8,000 grant to assist with urgent needs brought on from the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 July 31, 2020. 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 $1,133,562.
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.
