Sharing Success Community Grants
In 2019, Randolph Electric Membership Corporation’s People Helping People (PHP) program will award $10,000 in grant funds to local nonprofit agencies in Randolph, Moore, Montgomery, Alamance and Chatham counties. Qualifying organizations may apply for funding up to $2,000 to implement programs or purchase needed equipment to facilitate a program that will help make a positive impact in the communities where Randolph EMC member-owners reside.
The Community Grants Program is a special project of PHP, made possible because its partnership with cooperative lender CoBank. CoBank recently awarded $5,000 to PHP as part of its Sharing Success Matching Grant Program. Sharing Success was started in 2012 as a way to give back to co-ops and the nonprofits they support. Under the program, CoBank allocates $4 million annually to match charitable contributions by cooperatives to nonprofit organizations in their local communities, up to $5,000 per co-op.
With Randolph EMC’s $5,000 contribution combined with CoBank’s $5,000 match, People Helping People is able to extend its charitable reach into the community with $10,000 for nonprofit agencies.
