We have good news about June winner WomenHeart, right after this quick update...
Over $100,000 Served
This month we cross a big milestone! When we write June's grant check to WomenHeart next week, we'll have granted $100,704+ dollars since opening our site in September 2016. And this is your doing. Jessica and I have contributed a good bit toward Charitocracy's overhead, but we've only thrown an average amount into the monthly pots. 99% of it comes from your generosity month after month, year in and year out. So kudos to you. We've come a long way, baby!
June 2022 winner WomenHeart
Last night we named Charitocracy's 70th monthly winner. Congratulations to WomenHeart, The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, nominated by donor
StephL. They are the first and only national patient-centered organization dedicated to serving women with heart disease. Their community is here for you. You can find their website here. And let me just call out the years of cheerleading and patience on the part of StephL, who nominated WomenHeart back in December 2016! 67 months later, here we are. So proud. ❤️
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to WomenHeart next week.
So finally check out Charity's misdiagnosis story, in which doctors overlook her risk of heart disease during pregnancy. (Spoiler alert, they diagnose her heart failure just in time!) Then feel good about your part in our collective $1001+ grant to support WomenHeart's ongoing work.
Have a great July, happy 4th, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!

Two months after losing my cousin I nominated WomenHeart. It’s been 5.5 years since my sweet cousin Kim lost her battle with heart disease. While she was able, she worked as a community educator for WomenHeart and dedicated her short time here on earth educating others. This win is for her. Grateful for the chance to help give back to this organization in her honor. Love you Kim.
I’ve been silently cheering this on from the sidelines for almost as long as Charitocracy has existed. I’d like to think WomenHeart has received more overall visibility than most monthly winners here as a result, since it’s been riding the Top 10 probably longer than any other nominee! But its day in the sun, in honor of Kim, is finally here.
I hope the message is loud and clear: WOMEN, your hearts are just as vulnerable, so while you’re selflessly taking care of everyone else in your village, make sure to also check in with yourself and take care of YOU! ❤️
Thanks so much to Steph for her persistence. Kim was our daughter and was so passionate about sharing her story through WomenHeart. Sadly one of her heart sisters passed away this week from heart failure. Tonya was Kim’s “big sister”. Our hearts go out to all of the heart sisters who continue to raise awareness and batlle their own heart disease, and our heartfelt thanks go out to Charitocracy for choosing WomenHeart.
