The Alliance for Philanthropy 5% Club
The Five Percent Club offers individuals the opportunity to secure a vibrant future for our community. Economic indicators portray Fort Dodge as facing significant challenges because of its modest annual economic growth. In contrast, it appears Fort Dodge has an abundance of assets.
If all community members would invest just five percent of the wealth passed to the next generation in a local not for profit organization, we could create a community legacy that perpetuates and enhances our quality of life.
Though it is only five percent – by working together, five percent of your net worth, at the time of your death, can become $393,000,000 – that’s almost $400 million for our community. Think how $400 million over the next 50 years could change our community. To be successful, we must all work together.
We are inviting everyone to become a member of the Five Percent Club.
Membership is easy:
1) Make provisions for five percent of your net worth to be given to a local not for profit organization at the time of your death (with your regular legal or financial planning professional).
2) Fill out and return our simple form – and you are a member of a very important club.
The Steering Committee is working to identify an appropriate means of public recognition for members of the Five Percent Club.
