Elevate 920 is a group of individuals committed to making a difference in our community.
Local Members. Local Charities. Local Impact.
The concept is simple. Members commit to donating $100 per quarter. Prior to our quarterly meeting, our members have the chance to nominate their favorite local charities. From those nominations, we randomly choose 3 charities to present at the event. Each charity is given 5 minutes to tell their story and after all 3 have spoken, our members vote. The charity with the most votes takes home that quarter’s donation.
Now a $100 donation might not seem like a lot, but think about the impact when you combine 100 of those donations. Suddenly a $100 donation quickly becomes $10,000. $10,000 becomes $20,000. $20,000 becomes $30,000 and so on.
The size of our impact is only limited by the number of members that join us.
The impact on our community isn’t limited to the donation we make. Consider this:
While the two charities that aren’t selected don’t go home with a monetary donation, they go home with something even more valuable. They leave with increased awareness around their cause. Where else can that charitable co-founder stand in a room filled with people who have already raised their hand and said they are willing to donate to a local charity?
There is nothing preventing our members from supporting these charities on their own.
