A few words on Charitocracy

Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!

About nominee National Institute for Reproductive Health

The National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) builds power at the state and local level to change public policy, galvanize public support, and normalize women’s decisions about abortion and contraception.

Using a partnership model, we provide state and local advocates with strategic guidance, hands-on support, and funding to create national change from the ground up. We are a force multiplier – we form strategic partnerships with a wide range of organizations to directly impact the reproductive health and lives of women across the country. Since 2008, NIRH has provided direct grants and hands-on support to more than 170 reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations in 43 states and 64 localities across the country.

At the national level, we go where others don’t, engaging in groundbreaking public opinion research and original reports, proactive policy initiatives, and innovative advocacy campaigns to shape a new national conversation about reproductive freedom. We’re also known for our signature initiatives, including our nationally recognized youth leadership and peer education program, TORCH.

Our political arm, the NIRH Action Fund, works in parallel to change state and local electoral and policy landscapes.

We don’t just push back against restrictions on abortion and contraception; we fight for a society in which everyone has the freedom and ability to control their reproductive and sexual lives.

Who We Are

About nominee Together Rising

What We're About

Together Rising transforms collective heartbreak into effective action.

In a world where crises abound and heartbreak is in every community, people who want to help often don’t know where to turn. Together Rising is where to turn.

Whether it’s pulling children out of the sea outside the refugee camps in Greece, helping abandoned kids on the streets in Indianapolis, establishing the first opioid recovery home for pregnant teens in New Hampshire, building a maternal health wing in Port-au-Prince, providing a single mother access to breast cancer treatment, or keeping a foster family’s heat on in Texas — Together Rising identifies what is breaking the hearts of our givers as they look around their world and their community, and then we connect our givers’ generosity with the people and organizations who are effectively addressing that critical need.

We live in a world where people believe that We Belong To Each Other. We live in a world where people give away hard-earned money to strangers. We live in a world where Love Wins. And we have proof: Since 2012, Together Rising has raised over Fifteen Million Dollars, with a most frequent donation of $25.

Most of Together Rising’s funds are raised through Love Flash Mobs, time-limited fundraisers that have revolutionized crowd-sourced online giving, with thousands of strangers giving a maximum of $25 to meet a particular need in a matter of hours. Through these Love Flash Mobs, we are proving that small gifts can change the world in revolutionary ways.

100% of what Together Rising receives from every personal donation goes directly to an individual, family, or cause in need – not one penny we receive from individual donation goes to administration costs, unless a donor specifically authorizes that use.

So visit Together Rising's page on Charitocracy to vote for, like, or discuss this cause! And watch this moving video about a recent reunion of deported parents with their child, one of many such reunions made possible with Love Flash Mob fundraising by Together Rising:
