The mark of cooperative principles

Great River Gives Logo Among the seven principles that guide cooperatives is a promise to demonstrate concern for community.

That is taken very seriously at Great River Energy. The cooperative makes financial contributions to community organizations, funds scholarships, collects food and other necessities for those in need, and offers employees time off to volunteer – just to name a few.

All those individual efforts are now part of the Great River Gives program.

“We have quietly done a lot of great things across two states. When you add it all up, it’s a really big, impressive and impactful program,” said Great River Energy Communications Leader Lyndon Anderson.

Great River Gives places a greater focus on the needs of cooperative communities and determines how to make the greatest impact for the largest portion of the membership.
