Lamar Gives 365 will host its kickoff event Thursday, Aug. 11 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Summers Field Park. Those who join up give $365 per year – one dollar per day – for philanthropical use.
Membership averages 200. In its eight-year history, LG 365 has awarded $249,000 in grants and another $450,000 has been invested for future use.
The unique program allows members to vote on how grant money is allocated. So far, 31 grants have been made to non-profits and for community projects.
