You can help

Get Involved

NRECA International’s work is supported by charitable donations of time, money and materials from more than 300 electric cooperatives in the United States as well as private organizations and individuals.

We are thankful for the hundreds of America’s electric co-op directors, linemen, engineers, managers and other employees who have volunteered their time and expertise worldwide to bring first-time access to electricity, and train local partners to help utilities be sustainable in their own communities.

We need your support to continue this important work.
