Powder River Energy Foundation gives $10,000 to local organizations
Written by broebling on October 29, 2018
Press Release – Just in time for the holidays, the Powder River Energy Foundation reached out to assist organizations across northeast Wyoming who are making a difference in the lives of so many of our friends and neighbors in need.
The Powder River Energy Foundation donated $10,000 to 11 non-profit organizations in five counties through its annual 2018 Holiday Giving Campaign. This year’s recipients are:
Salvation Army and Feed the Flock Food Pantry
Hulett Corner Market for Holiday Baskets; Moorcroft First Presbyterian Church Holiday Baskets; and Sundance Community Christmas Baskets
All Souls Episcopal Church Food Pantry, Kaycee; and Bread of Life Food Pantry, Buffalo
The Hub on Smith for Giving Tree; and Walmart for Shop with a Cop
Newcastle Ministerial Association Christmas Appeal; Home Loving Care of Weston County
The donation is possible in part because of PRECorp’s Operation RoundUp® program. Operation RoundUp®
program gathers voluntary contributions from participating co-op members by “rounding up” their monthly bill to the next dollar, resulting in an average donation of 50 cents a month. These donations are then transferred to the Powder River Energy Foundation which is governed by the independent, voluntary board of directors who represent each county in the PRECorp service area.

administrative overhead to the Foundation is donated through its relationship with PRECorp. Additionally, since

Since its formation in 2007, the Powder River Energy Foundation has awarded more than $875,000 to
charitable organizations in every county of PRECorp’s service territory. To ensure the funding requests
received by the Foundation meet the criteria of a charitable donation, applications are reviewed by the Board of
Directors at their regularly scheduled, monthly meetings.
