Anyone can become a member of this awesome organization, here’s what they do:
There is a meeting four times a year, and it usually lasts no longer than one hour. Members place the name of a nonprofit of their choice in a hat at each meeting, with hopes of being one of the three drawn to present their chosen nonprofit. Each of the three members has five minutes to present why their nonprofit should receive the group’s vote. The group will listen, vote, and each write a check for $100 (which comes out to $10,000) – all of this happens in under an hour!
View the video below for an easy breakdown of how Give Where You Live works:
All organizations up for consideration must have a footprint in Northern Kentucky, and must be a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. The goal is to keep it local and have an impact that we can SEE in our own backyard.
Their first big event is happening on March 21st! They would love for you to join!
If you are someone with little free time and a desire to give back to your community, this is a perfect fit for you. It’s a quick and easy way to give back to others without committing too much time.
Thank you so much, Woody and Nancy, for hosting Give Back Tuesday!
