Each month, Be The Change features a specific NGO’s project or cause* for which they need money for. Once you sign up as a member by dedicating yourself to a small monthly donation, your donation combined with the other members’ donations, contributes to a grand project total.

At the end of each month, members are notified via our website, newsletter, e-mail blasts and social media of the total funds pooled. Members will learn of how the organizations are doing, how their donations assisted the NGO’s cause and, most importantly how, when and where they can volunteer their time in the future.

​Kinda something like this:

Thank You Philip S. Burg,

Your donation of $10 contributed to a grand total of $2000, for a local children’s home desire for new school uniforms. Also, tutors are needed this weekend at the children’s home if you are interested in volunteering……

You see what we’re saying.
