Helping Hand Foundation Recipients (Organizations only)

Piedmont Electric’s Helping Hand Foundation makes it easy for your local cooperative to support the needs of our community. Thanks to our generous members, the nonprofit Helping Hand Foundation can provide aid for members in need, Bright Ideas grants for local educators, college scholarships, youth leadership camps and more!

Members like you help fund the Helping Hand Foundation when your bill is rounded up to the nearest dollar each month. Participation in the program is voluntary. If you want to be included, do nothing and you will automatically be a participant. If you do not wish to participate, you can click here.

When we combine our pennies, we can continue to support our local community and grow our outreach in new ways. Thank you for lending a helping hand!
