Next Dollar Foundation

Since it’s creation in 1995, the Next Dollar Foundation has provided much needed funding for building and equipping medical centers, putting a roof over a swimming pool, lighting high school football fields, helping students go to college, opening a senior citizens center and starting a preschool. The Next Dollar Foundation invests in every community Wells Rural Electric Company (WREC) serves. Click here to see photo gallery of Next Dollar projects.
