Powering Positivity 

Within our service territory there are several nonprofit organizations that bring value to the community or communities they help support. Member Choice Grants allow our members to nominate a nonprofit organization within the cooperative's service territory to receive grant funds from United Power. These grants will help them continue to work toward accomplishing their mission and serve the local community. In this way, we are able to support the causes our members truly care about. 

Nominating an organization to receive a Member Choice Grant is as simple as filling out the form below and providing a brief reason why you feel the organization should receive the grant. 

In 2023, United Power awarded six nonprofit organizations nominated by our members with a $2,000 Member Choice Grant, announced in the United Newsline.

Member Choice Grant nominations are now open. Nominations must be received by Sept. 27, 2024.
