Capital Electric Cooperative teams up with the CRA Group to give back to emergency services volunteers

North Dakota’s volunteer emergency responders are the heroes of the prairie. They save lives, prevent injuries, and protect property and the community.

To say thank you, Capital Electric Cooperative is teaming up with The CRA Group to award $10,000 to local emergency services volunteers as a credit on their utilities!

A locally owned commercial real estate firm, CRA has been assisting Capital Electric with the marketing of its former headquarters building and other property. CRA chose to apply a portion of its commission proceeds to give back to those who volunteer their time in emergency services, providing Capital Electric with a $10,000 donation.

To qualify, applicants must be a current member of Capital Electric and must volunteer for emergency services, such as an ambulance service, fire department or law enforcement. Recipients will be selected based on an application form explaining their role and experience as a volunteer. Donations awarded from this fund are not need or project based, so detailed information is not required on the application.

The judging process to determine the number of recipients and the amount they receive will be performed by an independent group of co-op members along with at least one representative from CRA.

To apply yourself or nominate another member, complete the application form on the next page and mail it to: Wes Engbrecht, Capital Electric Cooperative, 7401 Yukon Drive, Bismarck, ND, 58503. The application is also available at www. You may also contact Wes at 701-712-7923 or to have an
application emailed to you.

The deadline to submit an application is March 31. Recipients will be notified by phone by May 1. Capital Electric and CRA are pleased to make this program available, and we look forward to receiving your application!
