GiVE 365 “unites and informs emerging philanthropists to make a collective impact on Greater Memphis. This innovative program allows members to pool their money and, for a dollar a day, to make a positive impact on the community.” (give365memphis.org)
“Community Dividends” highlights both continued and recently expanded Mercer Capital involvement. Chris Mercer, CEO, a longtime Community Foundation donor, and Matt Crow, president, offered to match employee contributions.
New Give 365 member and Mercer Capital employee, Karolina Grabowicz reflects on her experience saying, “GiVE 365 has been a fulfilling and fun experience, and I’m grateful that the presentation at Mercer Capital introduced me to this organization that embodies crowdfunding for project-based giving. I really appreciate this form of charitable giving, as it shows that many small donations together can make a difference. The GiVE 365 community has led me to reconnect with old friends and make new friends who are advocates for the bettering of our community.”
Mercer Capital, a national business valuation and financial advisory firm, is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee and encourages staff to participate in philanthropic endeavors of their choice.
