Past Winners: Growth

on a journey of personal growth

Lift 'Em Up!

In the growth category, we support self-improvement efforts through continued education and job training. We also support people who have endured or are still experiencing life crises by giving them the resources and moral support they need to overcome hardships, heal, and recover. People we want to help out include homeless people, differently abled, immigrants, survivors of traumatic experiences, communities with fewer resources, people going through financial crisis or unemployment, those returning from incarceration, and more for us to discover.

Each month, Charitocracy and our amazing donors hand select charities that are devoted to personal growth opportunities for people in need. By the end of the month, through voting we select one charity out of all the nominated charities from all 12 categories to which we donate our monthly pooled donations. Chances are, your favorite charities will win Charitocracy's monthly grant!

Take a look at the list below of personal growth charities that have won our monthly pot in the past. Then check out the current personal growth charity nominees (or all nominees) for this month's voting. Are we missing one you'd like to win? Join us and nominate your favorite personal growth charity to add to our voting list!
