Where is the money coming from for the Benevolent Fund?

GVEA's Board of Directors approved a contribution of $250,000 to start the fund. This money comes from GVEA's non-operating funds (i.e., rents paid, interest earnings, etc.). These costs are not recoverable through rates as they are not associated with providing electric service to our Members. Therefore, Members will not see an impact on their bill due to the fund.
