CORE Community Center recently received a grant from Tipmont’s Operation Round Up program.

When you add a few cents to your energy bill, you flip the switch to improve lives and communities.

In Operation Round Up, you round up your monthly Tipmont electric bill to the nearest dollar. Your tax-deductible average annual contribution of $6 benefits such area nonprofit efforts as: 

  • Exterior benches for the CORE Community Center in Frankfort. 
  • An automated external defibrillator for emergency use at Lafayette Urban Ministry, whose programs tackle basic human needs and uplift people across greater Lafayette. 
  • Materials to support the replacement of the 24-year-old McCutcheon High School band trailer for the McCutcheon Band Boosters
  • A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit for Transformed Birth Services in Lafayette. The organization aims to fill gaps in maternal health across Tippecanoe County. 
  • Diapers, wipes and formula for the Women’s Resource Center of Montgomery County, in Crawfordsville, which assists pregnant women and mothers with young children.

Tipmont also supports local projects in sustainability, renewable energy, and environmental improvement through the EnviroWatts program. As a participant, you add just one cent per kilowatt-hour to your monthly Tipmont electric bill — with a $5 monthly maximum. 

The EnviroWatts program donated $10,000 to the Lafayette Tree Fund to plant trees in public spaces throughout Lafayette.
