Guys Who Give
Become a part of a dynamic and inspired group of local men who are interested in making a meaningful impact in our local communities. Members come from all walks of life and varying financial backgrounds. Individually, it is challenging to make a significant difference– but together we have the ability to contribute to the growth and health of our communities in ways we never thought possible!
What is our mission?
Guys Who Give is a group of men with a desire to inspire and who are committed to making a difference in their local communities. The Mission is to reach out and help local charities with the funds they need to do the amazing work they are doing in their community. Collectively, the group can make a powerful impact to the charitable community and donate over $10,000 per quarter and $40,000 annually per market. This mission is accomplished by finding 100+ men to each contribute $100 at the quarterly events to benefit a chosen local charity that changes each quarter. All charities and organizations up for consideration must serve the county of the local chapter; the idea is to keep it local and have an impact that WE can SEE.

Guys Who Give
Pat Bruns - Member
"Boulder County is known for affirming the worth and value of all persons. We are known for creating opportunities for personal growth & development. We want people to be whole, well and productive. We want our communities to be havens of blessing and places of peace. We value that. Guys Who Give puts these values into action. In today's world $100 does not go far. But putting together 40, 50, 60 or more donations of $100 adds up to big differences in our community and allows the dedicated non-for-profits of our county not only change lives but also to literally save lives. How can you beat that? Can we invest in anything better than the lives of others?"
Adam Gordon - Member
"Between work and family obligations, it's easy to dismiss charity work as “I want to but just don't have the time”. GWG makes it dead simple with (an optional) one-hour commitment (with beer) every three months to vote on that quarter's charity. That's it."
Rick - Member
"What I love most about Guys Who Give is: While we're focused on an outward goal of helping local charities, we're organically creating an amazing inward result of a community of great guys getting to know each other and having fun."
Larry Gerber - Member
"I am just so happy to partner with other guys who have such big hearts that they want to work together and provide so much for those charities who are doing so much for those who have such important needs."
Jay - Member
"We get together for one hour, decide on which non-profit to support and we all write a check to that organization and our energy will transform, 100-fold! The power that you will see here, the energy you will find when more than 100 guys get together to make a difference in this world is something like you will never experience anywhere else."
Mike - Member
"These are local men stepping up to provide local, positive, impactful change in our community. Truly a real blessing."
Mike Crowe - Member
"Taking part in this group has been very rewarding and I've met some great guys who share a desire to give back, oh and there's the awesome brews from our host Gravity Brewing. There are so many organizations doing charitable work in our area, I can't imagine we'll ever run out of new recipients to help out, it's great to think that we have such an impact. Our community needs us all to help where and how we can; this opportunity is so easy to take part in and combines a group effort and throws in a fun quarterly gathering."
Tony Gambee - Member
"Guys Who Give is ideal in every way. First and foremost, it is a way for me to give to my community. Take that priority and add in the fact that my donation gets added to dozens of other donations to create one whopping treat for a charity along with a relaxed quarterly connection with like-minded guys and you have a solid recipe for good. It is low friction and low pressure with high reward. It reminds me how much good we have in our community."
Jay - Member
"The power of 100 like minds coming together for a common cause!"
Tom Hardie - Member
"There's something very rewarding about collaborating with other guys to give a meaningful shot in the arm to hard-working organizations in our own community. The format is efficient. The impact is timely and direct. I can't think of a better way to maximize a modest quarterly contribution."
Jeff Schuler - Member
"Guys Who Give just shows how a group of people coming together for the good of others doesn't have to be complicated and can be very powerful. It's great to see a bunch of guys pooling their resources together to make a large impact in the lives of others. I am extremely thankful that I was invited to be a part of this group."
