How to become an owner

One Person = One Share = One Vote

Purchasing a share in ELFCO is an investment in our community.

Each share is currently $60.00. Pay for your share in full or in eight quarterly installments of $7.50.

Special Memberships

Special memberships are available annually for those who qualify. Special memberships receive owner discounts but are not eligible to vote.

Low income memberships - just show your EBT card and pay a $5.00 non-refundable annual fee.

Tell the cashier you'd like to join, choose your investment and payment option, and sign up!
