What is Carthage 365?

A giving circle - a group of individuals that gather to discuss and decide on a charity or community project in Carthage to donate their combined $365/person donations to for a larger community impact.

Who decides on the recipient of the gift?

The group does! They come together at an annual awareness “party” and vote on where the collective
gift should be distributed.

How much commitment is involved?

A dollar-a-day gift is the commitment, everyone gets a vote. If you choose, you can submit to be on the
steering committee that decides on the list of projects that are included for consideration to receive the
gift. All members are encouraged to invite friends to join.

Where does my money go?

Carthage Community Foundation has created a fund that holds the annual contributions for Carthage
365 until the annual awareness "party". Once the circle determines the nonprofit to receive that year's
gift, the gift is distributed, zeroing out the account and the next year's contributions grow the fund for the
next year.

Who should join the group?

The goal is to get our community excited about giving. People aged 20-50 sometimes don’t know where
or how to give back or don’t think that their gift will be impactful. We hope that this group spurs
excitement about giving back to the community by seeing the effects of a collective, larger gift.
