Rhoden Monrose grew up in Harlem, NY after emigrating from Saint Lucia at the age of twelve. With the help of nonprofits, he attended Middlesex School before earning a scholarship to Trinity College. Upon graduating, Rhoden began his career as a derivatives trader at Citigroup. While the work was rewarding he felt something missing, and he tried to fill the void by working (and playing) harder. In 2011, he found a circle of like-minded individuals who found purpose in using their time, talent and money to make an impact. Rhoden’s personal experiences with nonprofit organizations helped fuel his passion to develop a technology platform where other young professionals have the opportunity to engage with nonprofits at a higher level. He founded CariClub, a unique online platform strategically positioned at the intersection of corporate citizenship and professional networking. CariClub gives young professionals access to philanthropic leadership opportunities, specifically associate board positions with well-known nonprofits and foundations. Since launching in 2014, CariClub has partnered with hundreds of highly regarded nonprofit organizations to place young professionals on associate boards from top industry firms such as Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, KKR, Blackstone, Davis Polk, Sidley Austin, Deloitte, EY and many others. CariClub was named by Built in NYC as one of “50 Startups to Watch in 2018,” and Rhoden was recently featured on Cause Artist as one of “14 Social Entrepreneurs of Color Making History through Social Innovation.” CariClub was previously named by CB Insights as one of “21 Nonprofit and Charity Tech Startups to Watch.” In addition to serving on the governing board of Charity Navigator and Row New York’s associate board, Rhoden is a member of the Board of Fellows at Trinity College (Hartford, CT) and the Alumni Association Board at Middlesex School (Concord, MA).
