Cooperative Principle #7 – Concern for Community:

Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative, it’s board, employees, and members are proud to announce that we are continuing our commitment to follow the Seven Cooperative Principles. In this particular instance, we are partnering with CoBank to following cooperative principle number seven in order to build more vibrant rural communities and share success:

While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies accepted by their members.

We are allocating funds in cooperation with CoBank’s Sharing Success Program to be awarded to up to 3 Nonprofit organizations in our service territory. The total amount of the gifts will be up to $15,000.00. ($7,500.00 guaranteed from CVEC to be matched equally by CoBank – while funds last) Organizations will be chosen based on the application at the recommendation of the CVECares Committee and confirmed by the Board of Trustees. We could not be prouder to increase available funds this year by another $5k and continue to truly serve the communities we serve daily with electricity!


  1. Organizations must reside within the geographical boundaries of CVEC’s service territory, but are not required to be members of or served by CVEC.

  2. Interested organizations must complete the application in its entirety and submit by the associated deadline THURSDAY, JUNE 20th by 11:59PM!

  3. A copy of the organization or charity’s IRS 501(c)(3) tax exemption must be included with the application. If the applying organization is not a 501(c)(3), please submit the organization’s TIN (taxpayer identification number), also referred to as an EIN (employer identification number).

  4. Matching funds are contingent upon availability (even after winners are selected by CVEC) of matching funds from CoBank.
