What is Men Who Give?

Men Who Give is an organization who meets quarterly to fund a local non-profit in need. Each member gives $520 throughout the course of the year. $20 goes towards refreshments for the meetings. The first $100 commitment supports an endowment fund for the Men Who Give organization to use to address future needs of the community. In addition, every member commits to donate $100 at each of the four meetings (whether they attend or not) to be given to a selected Tippecanoe County non-profit organization.

How does it work?

During each meeting, a member has the option of nominating an organization for consideration. At the meeting, three members’ submissions will be randomly chosen, and each will be given five minutes to provide an explanation of the organization and its services. Two minutes will also be provided for questions if needed. At the end of the presentations, the attendees vote, ballots are counted, and a winner is announced. The men then write their checks to the selected charity. Membership has grown to over 70 members. Every member donates $100 per meeting, so you can imagine how quickly the donation amount grows!
