BUSINESS NEWS

Wheatland Electric Cooperative, Inc. is proud to announce that we are once again renewing our Sharing Success program, a grant-giving initiative, in partnership with CoBank and the Scott Community Foundation.

As in years past, Wheatland Electric and CoBank have each contributed $10,000 this year to the fund, meaning $20,000 in grant funds is available for deserving community organizations across our service territory.

To date, our cooperative has awarded individual grants in the amount of $1,000 to many non-profit and community-oriented organizations across southwest and central Kansas for community-based projects. A total of $125,000 has been awarded to date over the past decade.

The Scott Community Foundation began formally accepting applications for grants from the Wheatland Electric Sharing Success Fund from non-profit organizations on Dec. 1, 2012. The program will continue to run until the funds are exhausted.

“The Sharing Success program allows us to give back to the communities we serve,” said Wheatland’s CEO/General Manager Bruce W. Mueller. “We’re excited to continue partnering with CoBank and the Scott Community Foundation.”
