One of the 7 Cooperative Principles is Concern for Community.  Howard Electric is proud to support the nonprofit organizations in our service territory.  These nonprofit organizations work hard to improve the communities we live in and around.  Since 2012 Howard Electric has donated $196,000 throughout the service territory without any affect on member electric rates.   That is correct, these donations did not have any affect on member electric rates.

Howard Electric Cooperative sends donated capital to the Howard Electric Community Foundation (HECF).  In a cooperative, donated capital comes from unclaimed capital credits.  The HECF funds are invested at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation (GKCCF) where they have grown substantially over the years.  

CoBank, one of Howard Electric’s lenders, has a Sharing Success program.  By applying to CoBank’s Sharing Success program Howard Electric has been able to secure $72,500 in matching grant funds. The Sharing Success funds in addition to the $123,500 from the HECF is what makes it possible for Howard Electric to make larger donations to the nonprofit organizations in our service territory. 

What a blessing for Howard Electric and the service territory.  The giving season was able to be extended throughout the year without any affect on the rates.  Providing members with safe, reliable, affordable, and clean electric power remains our top priority.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
