Mission and Vision


Community Grants

The Hill Country isn’t just our service area; it’s our community. That’s why we work to strengthen it by awarding community grants twice each year to qualifying nonprofit organizations.

Grants are awarded through a competitive application process with funds made up of members’ contributions through the Power of Change program and the cooperative’s support.

There are two funding cycles each year, with application deadlines in April and October. All application materials, including an IRS determination letter, must be included for consideration. If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, it is extended to the next regular business day.

Many Hands Program

Many hands make light work, and being a good neighbor means lending a tool or pitching in from time to time. That’s why we donate labor, the use of our specialized equipment or surplus materials when eligible organizations request them. Whether we’re setting poles to light youth sports fields or mulching Christmas trees for area parks and playgrounds, we love to lend a hand to make our community an even better place to live, work and play.

Eligible entities include our franchise tax cities, counties we serve and nonprofits within our service area. The project must also be physically located within our service area.

Requests must be made via the form on our website at least 10 days before our help is needed. This allows us to schedule staff and equipment to minimize any impact on our regular operations. If you have questions, please email us at communitysupport@peci.com.
