That we could solve real problems in the world if everyone simply chipped in a dollar.
It gets billed annually to keep credit card costs down. An extra month's worth (bringing the total to $13/year) helps cover Charitocracy's costs, but any leftover goes right back in the pot.
You can donate more than $1 per month, but it's always just 1 vote per donor. A bigger donation has a bigger impact, but not a louder voice!
Nominations are open during the first week of each month. If you nominate a cause it will receive your full vote that month, or you can simply vote for causes nominated by other donors.
You can split your 1 vote between up to 5 causes. (You have an unlimited supply of Likes, too!) After week 2 each month, we narrow to the Top 10, and after week 3, to the Top 3. A winner is selected on the last night of the month.
... and rhymes with meritocracy, because that's really what this is, a meritocracy of ideas about charitable giving.
Nominate causes, hype your favorites in our discussion forum, vote and revote often. Or sit back, relax, and simply consider us your crowd-curated charity-of-the-month club!
To engage, educate, and empower philanthropists, even at a small scale, to give more regularly and meaningfully.
It takes longer to read all this than to sign up. Charitocracy is itself a 501(c)(3) charity, so donations are tax deductible. How better to spend $13?!
