Your small change makes a big difference
Thanks to generous people like you, the Keep the Change program is making your community a better place to live. The funds in Keep the Change are donated voluntarily by Alliance Communications cooperative customers and are given back to community, school and nonprofit organizations.
Cooperative customers bills are rounded up to the next highest dollar. The average donation amount per customer is just $6 per year. The most a customer will contribute is $11.88 per year.
This small pocket change from thousands of customers is making a big impact. A total of 92 percent of Alliance customers participate in this voluntary program. As of mid 2019, the program has given more than $341,298.11 to area organizations since 2013.
The Keep the Change Board of Directors operates independently of the cooperative and consists of seven community members. They meet quarterly to evaluate all completed applications for funding and to make decisions on how those funds will be dispersed.
If you participate in an organization that could use funding, we encourage you to apply. An application is available below.
*Keep The Change program isn't available in the communities of Beaver Creek, Hardwick, Jasper, Kanaranzi, Kenneth, Magnolia and rural Luverne.
