Meet March’s 3 Degree Guarantee recipient: The Advancement Foundation

Each month, 10 News selects a charity to donate to based on the accuracy of our forecasts

ROANOKE, Va. – With a new month comes a new 3 Degree charity recipient.

This March, each time we hit the bullseye with our weather forecast, we will donate to The Advancement Foundation.

The nonprofit organization strives to establish a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem by implementing strategies that provide infrastructure, support and resources.

The American Foundation specifically helps with bringing in financial resources, training, community engagement, mentoring and other initiatives.

The organization also leads a program referred to as the Gauntlet, which is Virginia’s largest business program and competition, according to the American Foundation website.

How does 3 Degree Guarantee work, anyway?

  • If our forecasted temperature for a given day is within 3 degrees of the actual temperature, we’ll donate $10 to a specific charity
  • If our forecasted temperature is exactly on the dot, we’ll donate $100 to a specific charity
