Cooperative spirit is best exemplified by neighbors who unite to improve their community.

That’s why the people at Basin Electric have always taken great pride in supporting United Way.

Every year, Basin Electric hosts numerous fundraisers that benefit the nonprofit organization. Whether it’s paintball tournaments, Dilly Bar sales or taco in a bag lunches, charitable giving comes in many forms here.

After all, commitment to community is part of what being a cooperative is all about. It’s part of Basin Electric’s mission to seek out neighboring organizations that value this principle.

United Way chapters are at work in many of the communities where Basin Electric provides service. They exist as safe havens for those in need, and as organizations that thrive on promoting better health and community engagement.
