Our Commitment to Community

Community involvement is important to cooperatives like Pioneer Electric; in fact, it is one of the Seven Guiding Principles that shape the way we do business. At Pioneer Electric, community involvement goes further than being a good corporate citizen. It means looking beyond our business to support other local businesses and communities.

Serving Our Members Means Serving Our Communities

At an organizational level, we are active in the communities we serve through sponsorships and donations. Our Youth Programs include scholarships and annual trips for students. We organize an annual Health Fair in conjunction with our Annual Meeting where we provide our members with free access to important medical services such as blood-testing, bone density checks, back strength testing and a variety of other health-related services.

We provide free access to our meeting facilities at our headquarters located in Ulysses. Educational electric safety demonstrations, power quality studies, and home energy audits are among the other public services we offer members free of charge.

We also partner with local businesses and organizations to help support regional economic growth. Through Rural Economic Development grants and loans, we contribute to growing the economic base in southwest Kansas and keeping jobs and services in our communities.


Another important facet of our community involvement is the We Care program. Through this program, Pioneer Electric employees contribute funds to help families in need in the communities we serve.
