Our Commitment

We believe that it starts with power – better health care, improved education, economic growth and safer streets, all begin with reliable and affordable electricity. Learn how you can get involved and support our mission today.

Our work is supported by charitable donations of time, money and materials from more than 300 American electric cooperatives, organizations and individuals. We thank the hundreds of electric co-op directors, lineworkers, engineers, and managers who have volunteered to bring first-time access to electricity, and train local utilities be sustainable in their own communities. We need your continued support.
