The La Plata Electric Round Up Foundation was established to oversee the allocation of LPEA Round Up Grants and LPEA Educational Grants. Its mission is to advance and support causes within LPEA's service territory to improve the quality of life in our community.  

LPEA Round Up Grants

In 1996, the LPEA board adopted the Round Up community service program. The program “rounds up” a member’s bill to the nearest dollar and that amount is donated to a local charity in our service area. Our members' pennies have generated more than $1.3 million in funds for local agencies in La Plata and Archuleta counties. 

A percentage of Round Up funds is also distributed to community assistance programs each year. Thus far in 2022, the Round Up Foundation has allocated $14,680 to the Community Emergency Assistance Coalition and $4,891 to the Pagosa Outreach Connection to provide families and individuals with emergency assistance funds.

LPEA Educational Grants

LPEA uses unclaimed Capital Credits to provide funding for educational and community projects within our service territory.
