Foundation Reaches $4 Million Giving Milestone

The Flint Energies Foundation has reached a new milestone in grants to organizations throughout Middle Georgia. The Foundation has given more than $4 million to help people across the region since its founding in 2001.     “It’s rewarding to see our members, especially children, benefit from the grants that the Flint Energies Foundation makes,” said Kathy Waites, Chair of the Foundation. “Participating Flint members who allow the co-op to round up their bills every month are doing much more than they realize. Those few cents can change lives and do extraordinary things in our communities.”   Grants have been donated to numerous volunteer fire departments, police departments, schools, agencies for the disabled, youth programs and charitable organizations like Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Special Olympics and Boys & Girls Clubs.   Bright Ideas teacher grants and college scholarships are also given by the Foundation.

In total 1,025 grants have been given to more than 530 organizations.   “Operation Round Up has made a favorable impact on the communities we serve. It not only benefits Flint members

So we make solar an important part of the power generation mix for all of our members’ to use.” This utility-scale solar addition is not the first for Flint. The not-for-profit cooperative is a pioneer in providing renewable power generation resources to its members. The first renewable project in the State of Georgia was built at the Taylor County landfill back in 2003. Through its membership in Green Power EMC , Flint also takes power output
