50+ Men Who Care

Websitehttp://www.50menwhocare.com
Address730 S Christopher Drive
Bloomington, IN 47401
Description

 

 

Inspired by the recently formed 100+ Women Who Care of Bloomington, a group of local men have joined forces recently to form “50+ Men Who Care".

Similar to the women, our mission is simple: Bring together 50+ men in the Monroe County area who care about local community causes and are committed to community service.

Four times a year, we will meet for an hour and jointly vote for a local charity or not-for-profit organization (three will be nominated ahead of time).  Each man agrees write a $125 check to the selected organization and watches how the group’s commitment turns into a $5,000 or more donation.

We plan to do this four times a year and witness how this monetary contribution can improve the lives of our neighbors when placed in the hands of deserving grassroots agencies working to serve the local community.

Rotary clubs, which meet weekly, are nonpolitical, nonreligious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Club membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders. The organization’s motto is “Service Above Self.”
