Believing that we are stronger together than apart, Heartland 100 focuses on sustainable charitable giving. As a group, we can gather thousands of dollars for charity and make better philanthropic decisions through democratic voting. Here's how Heartland 100 will work:


We want to gather at least 100 residents in Southern Illinois who wish to participate. Members should be able to commit to a charitable donation of $100.


We will meet quarterly, or 4x a year, to discuss wish organizations to donate to. Each member contributes $100 at every meeting in order to vote.

Voting Process

Members will discuss different charitable organizations in the area who are accepting donations. After discussion, members will vote, and an organization will be chosen.


Once the cause or organization has been chosen, the combined total of $10,000 from members is awarded. Members will have a chance to choose another cause the next quarter.

How Can Charities Apply?

Organizations that qualify should be a 501(c)3 non-profit group or locally-recognized charity. Representatives from charitable organizations will be invited by members to present at the Heartland 100 quarterly meetings.

Representatives will be given 5 minutes to present on their organization. Once all organizations have presented, voting members will deliberate. Representatives are invited to stay to answer any questions members may have.

Organizations may not present at meetings more than once a year. Once a 12 month period has passed, organizations may be invited by voting members to present again on their latest cause they are soliciting donations for.

Heartland People Care is a giving group where you can join community-minded people to provide a local charity or non-profit with much needed help.

Our ideal vision is to have 100% participation from everyone involved. Please understand that by joining us you are making an annual commitment of $400 USD a year (or $100 each quarter).

The money will be given directly to a local charity that serves the Southern Illinois community which is selected by a majority vote.

At our quarterly meetings, there may be press or photographers there who are interested in documenting our work. By attending the meetings, we want you to understand that you may be included in photos or videos we may share on this site or on our Facebook page.

If you're not able to attend a quarterly meeting-- no problem! You can give your check or cash donation to another member to give on your behalf.

Right now we are soliciting interest. We welcome you to RSVP to our inaugural informational by signing up below. Please note that by submitting your contact information, you're consenting to that info being stored in our database. We do not sell, give, or share your info with any third party that is not affiliated with the Heartland 100 giving circle.

At any time you are no longer able to commit to the giving circle, email us and we'll remove your name from the database.


Our goal is to generate organic interest by spreading the word. If we can get at least 100-125 people to sign up in Southern Illinois, we can make Heartland 100 a reality.
