Nobles Cooperative Electric (NCE) is pleased to announce the Fulda Fire Department in Fulda as the recipient of this year’s NCE/CoBank “Sharing Success” Grant.

 

The Fulda Fire Department has been awarded two checks totaling $10,000 – $5,000 from NCE and $5,000 from CoBank – to help purchase auto and structural extracting equipment.

 

“Concern for community and cooperation among cooperatives are longstanding cooperative principles. Throughout rural America, cooperatives are working not only to provide value to their members but to improve the quality of life in their communities. We’re delighted to be able to support an area volunteer fire department through CoBank’s grant program. The people that make up these departments volunteer their time to respond to fires and other emergencies requiring volunteer fire fighters, and we are proud of the work they do in the rural communities that we mutually serve,” said Adam Tromblay, NCE’s general manager.

 

The annual “Sharing Success” grant opportunity, capped at $10,000, is made possible by NCE, in partnership with CoBank – a national nonprofit cooperative bank owned by the rural American cooperatives it services, including NCE. This year, CoBank established a $3 million fund to match charitable contributions made by its cooperative members. The matching grant program is designed to celebrate the vital role that cooperatives play in individual communities across the country. CoBank states that partnering with their customers to support worthy causes they care about is a great way for them to make a positive difference and fulfill its mission of service to rural America.

 

 “Thanks to our board of directors and CoBank, the “Sharing Success” Grant has enabled NCE to give back to the communities we serve,” General Manager Tromblay stated.

 

This is the second year NCE has awarded a “Sharing Success” grant to a local non-profit. Applicants must be federally recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

 

NCE believes in commitment to community. They provide electric service to 6,700 members in Murray and Nobles Counties.
