Rowan365 is based on the simple, powerful idea that together we are stronger

ROWAN365 connects the new generation of civic and charitable leadership for just $1 per day—$365 per member. Pooled with your fellow ROWAN365 members, your commitment compounds, creating a powerful grantmaking engine for nonprofits and civic projects. Your annual member contribution is split equally into two pools — half of your contribution is used for immediate grantmaking. The other half builds the ROWAN365 Endowment, which serves as a perpetual charitable asset to provide additional annual grantmaking resources for generations to come.
