Mission Statement

The mission of the Sawnee Electric Membership Foundation is to assist in strengthening the communities served by Sawnee EMC. The Foundation will accomplish this mission by providing financial assistance to selected charitable organizations through the Foundation’s Operation Round Up program. This program affords SEMC members the opportunity to “round up” their energy bills to the next highest dollar. These funds, along with monies from other organizations, allow donations to students, schools and various 501 (c)(3) and 501 (c)(4) organizations located within Sawnee EMC’s service territory, which includes parts of Cherokee, Dawson, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall and Lumpkin counties
