VEA Charitable Foundation

Helping Those Who Need a Helping Hand


This program enables the employees and members to help organizations, agencies and individuals in need all across VEA’s service territory, while receiving a tax benefit, as it is a 501(c)3, for their commitment of time, energy, talent and generous contributions. Donating via Operation Round Up also goes to the Charitable Foundation.


The mission of the Valley Electric Charitable Foundation is to demonstrate our commitment to members, community, individuals, community projects and non-profit or charitable organizations in our service territory.
