If you're not already a member of weGive365, here are the basics...
How weGive365 Works
weGive365 members give a minimum of $1 per day equaling $365 annually. By pooling lots of small funds into one large fund, weGive365 members are able to make impactful grants which improve our community today and into the future in partnership with the Rochester Area Foundation.
50% of the funds raised are placed in the grants pool and 50% are placed in an endowed fund which will be allowed to grow to support future grants.
What does that look like?
If 50 people join weGive365, in the first year there would be a pool of about $18,250. 50% of that total is allocated to grants - that's $9,125 for area nonprofits!
How do we decide on grants?
As a weGive365 member, you vote on who gets the grants! Grant requests are submitted annually to the fund. Members have the opportunity to review them and vote on how many should be funded and at what level.
