The purpose of the SCI Membership Community Fund is to accumulate and disburse funds for charitable purposes to individuals, families, groups, and organizations located in the service area of South Central Indiana REMC. The REMC’s service area includes Morgan, Owen, Brown, Monroe, and portions of Johnson, Clay, and Putnam Counties. The source of funds is the REMC’s members who voluntarily participate in a RoundUp program. Each month, those members volunteering to participate, allow their electric bill to be rounded up to the next highest dollar. The amount rounded up is accumulated by the REMC and transferred to the SCI Membership Community Fund.
