Imagine what could happen if everyone got together and gave at least a dollar each to an active and trusted non-profit. Local communities like yours would be impacted significantly. To some, this may seem a broad, even an impossible, goal. We see it as worthy challenge, and we have decided to rise to the occasion and do our part to make such an event possible. We sincerely believe that just one dollar on one day of the year can change the world.
Please allow us to introduce you to the â€œDonate A Dollar Dayâ€ movement. On the second Saturday in October of every year, those who join the movement will give a dollar (or more) to a local organization of their choice. Donate a Dollar Day is a national movement with far-reaching local impact.
In recent times, larger charities have been found guilty of not funneling the majority of their donations to their declared cause. For every dollar given to major charities as much as 10 cents goes towards administrative costs and upwards of 20 cents goes towards marketing efforts.
With total overhead (administrative costs, fundraising, marketing, building overhead, etc.) reaching upwards of 30 cents per dollar, people have increasing reservations about donating their money to these larger charities.
We believe altruism still exists.Â We are dedicated to giving people a practical way to unite and share sincere goodwill throughout their communities. Our mission is to mobilize the people in your community to give to small non-profits and micro-charities that are making a real and tangible difference in the community.
