Address 730 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.
