100+ Men who care about Cleveland
Men who give a damn
PHILANTHROPY FOR EVERYONE
OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE: TO BRING TOGETHER 100+ MEN IN CLEVELAND WHO CARE ABOUT LOCAL CAUSES AND TO IMMEDIATELY IMPACT OUR COMMUNITY.
Will You Join Us? Are you interested in making a positive impact within the Greater Cleveland community? Do you have limited time and resources to give? If so, then 100+ Men Who Care about Cleveland might be for you!
Founded in 2018, 100+ Men Who Care about Cleveland is one of more than 350 similar groups located worldwide that focus on coordinating funding for local, community charitable organizations. We gather at quarterly meetings for 30 minutes to hear three short presentations on local nonprofits in need. Members vote and each person contributes $100 directly to the winning nonprofit chosen for a collective, impactful donation. Members and guests are welcome to stay afterwards to socialize.
What should you do now?
1. Join and commit to donating to local charities - get your friends, board members of your favorite charities and others to join and commit (more $ to give)
2. Then you can nominate a charity to be donated to by the group
3. If you can attend the meeting, vote
Our Next Meeting: Thursday, May 16, 2019 from 530p-630p at the Cleveland Racquet Club
Breaking News: Here is an update on our January 17, 2019 meeting:
