Operation Round Up(date) - 2022 Q2 Funding

Congratulations to the recipients of Operation Round Up funding from the second quarter of 2022! The Operation Round Up Committee reviewed many excellent applications and awarded funds to five deserving organizations. We are pleased that EQUS members can support these great projects in our rural communities:

Linn Valley Community Association, $4,750 - Funding to make upgrades to the community skating rink that will prolong the outdoor skating season and save on maintenance and water costs.

Alberta Beach & District Agricultural Society, $5,000 - Funds for the purchase of a floor scrubber to ensure the facility is clean and safe for community activities including dance classes, pickleball, Mom & Tot groups, seniors, and more.

Lake Isle Farmer's Association, $2,700 - Funding for renovations to improve accessibility at the Lake Isle Community Hall.

Sundre Aquaplex, $5,000 - Funds for the purchase of new Aquafit equipment including belts, flutter boards, noodles, and a water fountain available to all pool users.

Rich Valley Historical Society, $4,148 - Funding to purchase supplies required to replace a double door and the door frame as part of volunteer restoration efforts on a historic church building.

Operation Round Up is a program that provides grants to initiatives that support rural youth and seniors using funds raised from participating EQUS members rounding their monthly bills up to the nearest dollar. Operation Round Up funds are awarded by a committee that consists of the EQUS CEO, one representative from the EQUS Board of Directors, and three EQUS members. The committee meets quarterly to review applications and award funding of up to $5,000 per initiative.

The next deadline to apply for Operation Round Up Funding is coming up on September 30!
