About Project RoundUP
Stoughton Utilities customers can opt to enroll in the voluntary RoundUP program. In this program, your utility bill will "round up" to the next highest dollar amount. This small tax-deductible contribution may seem like only pennies a month, but the dollars add up quickly when many customers participate. A summary of the tax-deductible contribution for the past year will be mailed separate from your utility bill each January. Build something special from just a few cents
Customer Contribution
The average contribution per program participant is just $6.00 per year, however an estimated $2,500 will be raised each year to be awarded by the Stoughton Utilities Committee twice annually to local community service organizations.
How It Works
The RoundUP program works like this: Stoughton Utilities will round up utility bills of participating members to the next dollar. For example, if your bill is $41.70, it would be "rounded up" to $42. Your maximum contribution per year could be $11.88, but generally will be less than that, averaging $6 per year. Your contribution is tax deductible and the funds are administered by the Stoughton Utilities Committee, and overseen by the Stoughton City Council. By joining this program you are continuing the "neighbor helping neighbor" concept that founded Stoughton Utilities years ago. If you decide to participate in this program, thank you.
Major Funding Categories
To qualify for funding, projects must generally be related to community service, economic development, education and youth, environment, emergency energy assistance or disaster relief. Applicants for scholarship funding must be planning to attend an accredited post-secondary educational institution in pursuit of their initial post-secondary degree. These institutions could include technical colleges, universities or colleges.

Although there are many worthy charitable and educational projects and community needs in our local area, the limited availability of funds requires us to establish funding priority categories as follows:
  • Community Service
  • Economic Development
  • Education and Youth
  • Environment
  • Emergency Energy Assistance
  • Disaster Relief
Contributions will be geographically within the area served by Stoughton Utilties and will include the City of Stoughton and the Townships of Dunn, Dunkirk, Pleasant Springs, Porter, and Rutland. Organizations which provide programs and benefits to people who live in this geographic area are eligible for funding consideration, even though the organization is located elsewhere.
