Consolidated Electric Cooperative employees and directors are proud of their commitment to serve community. The cooperative has provided support through donations for community, educational, youth and civic events in the communities they serve for many years. In 2020, the decision was made to establish a 501(c)(3) Trust in which donations and grants can be utilized to enhance the level of contributions for communities and events.

The CEC board of directors and employees are happy to announce the formation of the Consolidated Cares Trust. The trust was established to allow for assistance with community development, environmental health, education, youth development and research. The board of trustees will operate under the focus of assisting in the benefit and enhancement of educational, social, cultural, health and civic resources within the communities served by Consolidated Electric Cooperative.
