Project Helping Hand
Thanks to Adams Electric members, Project Helping Hand has been able to help keep the lights on for over 250-300 fellow members per year for the last 25 years. When those members fell on hard times, they turned to Project Helping Hand, administered through local human service agencies.
You can help by joining the nearly 5,000 other Adams Electric members who allow the co-op to "Round-Up" their electric bills to the nearest dollar amount. The difference in change goes to Project Helping Hand. This program helps less fortunate co-op members, who are unable or struggling to pay their electric bill.

How it works...
If your electric bill is $85.36, you would pay $86. Your bill would show that you are giving 64 cents to Project Helping Hand.
Your Round-Up donation and checks payable to Project Helping Hand are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Please check with your tax advisor on deductibility.
Your annual donation will average $6, and may be as small as 12 cents, but will never be more than $11.88 per year. All donations go directly to help qualifying Adams Electric members, who are struggling to pay their electric bills.
You may join the Round-Up program any time during the year by contacting the cooperative at 888/232-6732. You may cancel participation whenever you wish. You may stop your participation at any time by simply notifying the co-op.
If you are interested in benefiting from the program, contact the cooperative toll-free at 888/232-6732.
Other ways to donate...
- Have a donation added to your bill one time per year
- Send a personal check
- Contribute your patronage capital money each year
If you are currently participating, thank you! Your donations will continue until you cancel participation with the program.
For your tax records, your annual donation to Project Helping Hand through your electric bill is noted on your January and February bills each year. The total is for the previous year.
