Beginning in February, Bandera Electric Cooperative members will have the chance to make a difference in their community by nominating a nonprofit in the BEC service territory. Nominations will be accepted February 1 through March 15.
The BEC Foundation board will select three of the nominated organizations based on its charitable giving guidelines and predetermined criteria. The three organizations will be announced in March, and members will be able to vote for the winning nonprofit organization via email. The winning organization will receive a grant up to $5,000.
“It is our goal that this contest will help expand our network of nonprofit organizations to improve the quality of life for our members and to better serve the community as a whole,” said Toba Wright, BEC Foundation chairman.
The BEC Foundation regularly supports nonprofit organizations through charitable contributions with a focus on health initiatives, education and youth programs, social services projects, and community services projects.
