Our mission is to mobilize the caring power of our fellow employees and show that we are there for us. Kentucky Rural Electric Disaster Fund, Inc. exists for the purpose of offering financial and other relevant support during times of uncertainty and need for:
When an extraordinary life event or need arises, we’ll look for ways to support electric cooperative employees financially.
Helping Hand During Hardships
Whether it’s during times of hardships or in support of the organizations near and dear to the electric cooperative community, our volunteerism makes a difference in our communities where we live and work.
Working to connect electric cooperative employees in need with resource support that can help them beyond their monetary need.
Following the devastating tornadoes in Kentucky on December 10 and 11, and due to multiple requests from across the state and country, Kentucky Electric Cooperatives, the statewide association, has organized the Kentucky Rural Electric Disaster Fund to assist members of the co-op family who face challenges after disasters, and for the aid of communities served by co-ops.
Though we are confident the IRS will ultimately determine this fund to be a valid 501(c)(3) non-profit, which will allow for tax deductibility of any contribution, this process can be time consuming. Until the final determination is made by the IRS, there is a risk of donations not being recognized as tax deductible.
As such, the Kentucky Rural Electric Disaster Fund will accept donations, and when determination is made, notify all donors.
