Ways To Give

Ways to give to the BEC Foundation, and in turn your community, include rounding up your electric bill to the next whole dollar, using AmazonSmile, making a donation via mail or in person and more.


Round Up to Make a Difference

BEC members can choose to round up their monthly electric and/or fiber bill to the next whole dollar. For example, if your monthly electric bill is $53.73 Bandera Electric will automatically round up to $54.00, with the additional 27 cents going to the BEC Foundation. Your bill reflects the rounded up amount, and the average donation for each participating member is $6 per year. This money is then used to provide grants to nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organizations and fund projects in BEC service areas that help other BEC members, your neighbors.

To enroll, simply fill out the form below, stop by a BEC office, enroll using your myBEC account online, or call 866.226.3372 to speak with Member Relations. You will have the option to round your utility bill up to the nearest whole dollar per meter or donate a set amount per month.


Shop With AmazonSmile


AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support the BEC Foundation when you shop, at no cost to you. At AmazonSmile you use your Amazon account, and you see the same products at the same prices you see on Amazon. In return, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the BEC Foundation.

On your first visit, use the search bar to select “BEC Foundation” to receive donations from eligible purchases.

AmazonSmile remembers your selection, and every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile makes a donation. Learn more here.
