Operation Round Up(date) - 2022 Q3 Funding
Congratulations to the recipients of Operation Round Up funding from the third quarter of 2022! The Operation Round Up Committee reviewed many excellent applications and awarded funds to three deserving organizations. We are pleased that EQUS members can support these great projects in our rural communities:
ABC Playschool (Darwell), $1,790 - Funding for classroom enhancements, outdoor toys and equipment, and craft supplies to be used by preschool-aged children attending the facility.
Etzikom Community Recreation Association, $5,000 - Funds to purchase new external doors for the community hall as part of an ongoing renovation project
Innisfail Community Facility Enhancement Association, $5,000 - Funds towards the purchase of bleachers as part of the 'Diamond 7' Project underway at the Innisfail Twin Arenas.

Operation Round Up is a program that provides grants to initiatives that support rural youth and seniors using funds raised from participating EQUS members rounding their monthly bills up to the nearest dollar. Operation Round Up funds are awarded by a committee that consists of the EQUS CEO, one representative from the EQUS Board of Directors, and three EQUS members. The committee meets quarterly to review applications and award funding of up to $5,000 per initiative.
The next deadline to apply for Operation Round Up Funding is coming up on December 31!
