Blue Ridge Electric Members Foundation
The Blue Ridge Electric Members Foundation was formed in late 2006 in order to expand the commitment to the communities we serve. The Foundation became necessary as a result of the members response to the Operation Round Up program and a donation from the cooperatives’ subsidiary, Blue Ridge Energies.
The Blue Ridge Electric Members Foundation is now accepting applications for larger Impact Grants in addition to smaller community grants. Eligible agencies and organizations include emergency and community service agencies and organizations which provide benefits to the communities and people in the areas served by Blue Ridge Electric.
