One Percent Foundation
Ever wanted to be a philanthropist but didn't have millions of dollars? Here's your chance. One Percent Foundation is a giving circle. Members pledge 1% of their salary each month and the money then goes to nonprofits of the group's choice. Don't know what 1% is of your monthly salary? Don't worry. They have a calculator to help you. Someone who makes $40,000/year will give less than $40/month (perhaps they take into account taxes?). For March Madness, they got creative and are having a Tourney Contest. A $10 pledge lets you nominate a nonprofit and enter their tourney. The tourney winners receive the ability to donate the pot to the nonprofit(s) of their choice. Hurry...You have until March 17th to enter!
