Get all the facts you need here about how it works, the process,
who is eligible for membership, and more.





The concept is straightforward.


  • Members commit to donate $100 per quarter ($400 annually) to the selected non-profit
  • Members nominate local non-profits prior to the meeting
  • Three non-profits are selected prior to the meeting from the process below
  • Eight-minute presentations are made by the three selected local non-profits
  • Secret ballot votes determine which of the three local non-profits receive the donations that quarter
  • Donations can be made by check or through


The Process


Approximately two weeks prior to the meeting, all members will receive an email requesting nominations for their favorite local nonprofit. Once nominations are received, the co-founders meet and randomly draw three names from the pool of nominees. All members will then receive a subsequent email announcing the three local nonprofits that were selected. This email will also contain the selected nonprofits’ websites. We encourage you to visit the websites and research each group prior to their presentations. At the meeting, after all three presentations, each member will vote via secret ballot. The winner will be announced at the end of the meeting.
