The Concept

100+ women contribute $100 four times a year. IMAGINE the possibilities for our community! 

How It Works:

  • Each member commits to donating $100 per meeting, four times a year.

  • Meetings are diligently conducted in one hour or less.

  • Any member who has completed a Membership Form and who is current with her donations may submit a Charity Nomination Form to nominate an organization for consideration at a meeting.

  • The nominating members of three randomly selected organizations will make a five minute presentation about the organization to the group and a Q&A session will follow.

  • Each member who has completed a Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may vote (by ballot) for one of the three organizations

  • Each member will either write a cheque for $100 or make a donation online to the organization receiving the most votes.

  • The selected organization will receive a group donation of $10,000 or more!

  • Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless.

  • Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the organization.

  • Members who are unable to attend a meeting are expected to give her cheque to another member to deliver on her behalf or make a donation online

  • Organizations under consideration must serve South Georgian Triangle and provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing members.

  • An organization not chosen to receive our donation at one meeting is eligible for selection at a subsequent meeting.

  • A successful organization is not eligible for future consideration for three years, but the nominating member may submit the name of another organization.

  • Ties will be decided by further votes.  If a tie persists, the membership will vote to either (1) randomly select one of the tied organizations by draw; or (2) divide the group donation equally between the tied organizations.

  • The selected organization must agree not to use member information for further solicitation purposes, or give it out to any third parties except for tax purposes.

  • Each meeting will include up to 10 minute update on how the funds donated at the previous meeting were used by the successful organization.
