Started in 2011, Give360° is a community giving circle within the Minot Area Community Foundation. Give360° is an affordable way to leverage your charitable dollars with gifts from other caring individuals and to learn about and support local nonprofits. In addition to community giving, there is ample opportunity to build new friendships through social events and simply by working together for the common good of the Minot area.
The diverse membership is united in its commitment to meet or exceed the emerging needs of our community. Annual dues are just $360 per person or per couple. Members may choose to pay in installments and/or give more to increase the grant pool. Give360° socials and other administrative costs are sponsored by area businesses, allowing 100% of individual annual dues to be used for community projects. Each member has the opportunity to vote for the project they think Give360° should support and can choose whether to be involved minimally or to participate in the implementation of Give360° selected projects. We encourage every member to recommend and/or develop projects for funding consideration.
We unite caring community supporters to make a collective impact on our community. For some members, participation in Give360° is a chance to augment their individual giving by working with like-minded peers to make a tangible difference; for others, Give360° provides a first opportunity to engage in meaningful community giving. All Give360° members have an opportunity to learn more about the issues facing their community and the nonprofits working to provide solutions.
To date, Give360 has invested over $90,000 back into the Minot community. Here are some of the projects the group has been able to support.
