A Dollar a Day

 

GiVE 365, an initiative of the Community Foundation, is a simple idea with a profound impact.  It's all about philanthropy - a dollar a day.  By joining GiVE 365, your contribution is pooled with those of other members, and you get a significant role in deciding which organizations will receive grants.

This year's grant projects support an idea voted on by members - Eyes on the Prize - which will focus on the graduation efforts of students in our city. Eleven organizations presented their ideas to a captive audience on September 20, and now it's in the members' hands to vote on which organizations they deem most worthy of the pooled funds. Tough choice!

There are currently about 200 members (and counting). And the more members, more money available for grants for our community.  The impact is growing stronger and stronger. 

Check out GiVE 365's facebook page and website.  For more information, you can contact Ashley Harper at (901) 722-0022.
