Operation Round Up(date) - 2023 Q2 Funding

Congratulations to the recipients of Operation Round Up funding from the first quarter of 2023! The Operation Round Up Committee reviewed many excellent applications and awarded the second round of funding for the year to two deserving organizations. We are pleased that EQUS members can support these great projects in our rural communities:

Carstairs Skating Club, $3,080 - Funds to purchase new equipment to be used in CanSkate, StarSkater, and synchronized skating programs as well as other programs that are part of the club.

Heatherdown Cemetery Foundation, $3,000 - Funding to cover costs of painting the cemetery chapel ensuring its availability to the community for memorial services, weddings, and other important events for years to come.

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 September 30!
