We have good news about September winner The Brigid Alliance, right after this important update...
Contribute to our Endowment Fund
Most of the excitement this month involves the OBX side of Charitocracy. You may have heard we're teaming up with the local community foundation to get more of our home community involved in philanthropy. We'll utilize Charitocracy OBX to choose the winner of OBCF's $4000 grant at their October 15 40th birthday party.
But there are two upsides to all this for Charitocracy USA:
- The new donation bundles we offer at Charitocracy OBX include contributions to the USA pot as well. So hopefully we'll add more Charitocracy USA donors to our ranks this way!
- We have a shiny new endowment fund managed by OBCF. Shiny because the metaphorical bucket is brand new and not yet marred by the crush of all your hefty gold bars and dirty $100 bills. But this is an important first step toward keeping Charitocracy thriving into the future. Let's see what we can make of it!
You can change your annual donation at any time, making it bigger, smaller, or adjusting the mix between monthly pots, the new endowment, and your "tip" to Charitocracy to help us cover expenses like servers and credit card processing.
September 2022 winner The Brigid Alliance
Last night we named Charitocracy's 73rd monthly winner. Congratulations to The Brigid Alliance nominated by donor
zardoz. They arrange and fund confidential, personalized travel for those seeking abortion care in increasingly hostile environments. You can find their website here.
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to The Brigid Alliance next week. Then feel good about your part in our collective $990+ grant to support their ongoing work.
