Guys Who Give (Vigo County)

Guys Who Give is a philanthropic men’s group, coordinated by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, designed to provide financial support for charitable causes in Vigo County, IN while creating a sense of community. Guys Who Give is open to all men – the more men involved, the greater impact!


Guys Who Give is composed of men who share a common desire to give back to their local community.

Members commit to donating $500 annually. The first $100 supports an endowment in the Wabash Valley Community Foundation that will be used to serve future needs. The remaining $400 is used to support the 4 nonprofits selected by members throughout the year ($100 at each meeting). For example, if we have 100 members, each quarter the group will award a $10,000 grant to a local nonprofit organization. For the first time, Guys Who Give is offering a reduced membership for members 40 years old and younger to encourage philanthropy. The reduced membership requires $50 for the membership fee and then $50 at each meeting, totaling $250 for the year.
