Charitocracy's 54th check to February winner Glimmer of Hope Foundation for $1299

We have good news about February winner Glimmer of Hope Foundation, right after this quick update...

300

By the end of 2016 we had 200 donors. That magic number saw us through 2017, 2018, and 2019. We'd attract new donors at a rate roughly the same as our attrition rate, plus or minus about 10%. Then came February 2020!

Stay tuned for a blog post dedicated to this milestone. But spoiler alert: thanks to a combination of aggressive (and successful) recruiting campaigns by several nominees over the past 12 months, including this winner below, and the rollout of our new OBX site, we've surpassed 300 donors! Next stop: 400?

February 2021 winner Glimmer of Hope Foundation

Last night we named Charitocracy's 54th monthly winner. Congratulations to Glimmer of Hope Foundation, nominated by donor pottspac1@gmail.com. They show girls and boys their strength and beauty by donating bald dolls and giving HOPE to those battling childhood cancer. 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 Glimmer of Hope next week. And feel good about your part in our collective $1299+ grant to support their ongoing work.

Have a great March, stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!

We have an Environmental winner for a change

In over 4 years, we've only had one quasi-environmental winner before, Sky's the Limit Fund, who offer wilderness therapy programs for youth in crisis. Today's winner marks the first 100% environmental winner at Charitocracy. And I hope it marks the beginning of a new era! Check out our other environmental charity nominees, or consider nominating one yourself!

January 2021 winner Clean Air Task Force

Last night we named Charitocracy's 53rd monthly winner. Congratulations to Clean Air Task Force, nominated by donor Bethany. They're an environmental organization pushing change in technologies and policies to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. 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 CATF next week.

So finally please take two minutes to learn something from Clean Air Task Force. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) can be used to decarbonize fossil energy and turn it into a zero-emissions industry! Then feel good about your part in our collective $1359+ grant to support their ongoing work.

Have a great February, stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!

Nominate Whenever You Want

For all of you who have ever wanted to nominate a cause at Charitocracy, but was struck with the notion during some other than the first week of the month, I have some welcome news for you. For all of you who have contacted me with this feature request, I say to you years later: You were right and I've finally addressed it. For those of you who never noticed the strict first-week-of-the-month-only nomination timeframe: Nothing to see here, carry on!

It's still important to give donors an opportunity to familiarize themselves with new nominees. We want them to debut in a bright spotlight versus being buried in the noise by in-progress Top 10 or Top 3 votes. So nominations that come in after the 1st week of the month will be held in a queue until the 1st week of the next month. But you can get the nomination in as soon as you think of it. Meanwhile it gives me some extra flexibility as to when I go through the steps of "onboarding" it. Win/win!

December 2020 winner Maddie Potts Foundation

As the ball dropped on New Year's Eve we named Charitocracy's 52nd monthly winner. Congratulations to Maddie Potts Foundation, nominated by donor Wildtreemichelle. They honor Maddie, giving back via scholarships, sports facility upgrades & opportunities for individuals ​with disabilities. 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 Maddie Potts Foundation next week. We've already gotten one big one, in fact! Keep 'em coming...

So finally please take a few minutes to get a glimpse of who Maddie was and what she represented to her teammates. Then feel good about your part in our collective $1600+ grant to help keep Maddie Mentality alive.

Have a great January (and 2021!), stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
