How 100+ Women Who Care Works
Each member must commit to donating $100 per meeting ($400 per year).
The donations will be given to Louisville Metro charities/non-profit/worthy cause serving the Louisville area only. No national charities will be considered unless the local affiliate will maintain 100% of the donation. The purpose is for the contribution to stay 100% in the community.
Members who wish to submit a charity for consideration must complete a Charitable Organization Fact Sheet and be ready to give a 5-minute presentation at the meeting about the charity. Three submissions will be randomly drawn at the meeting. A brief Q&A will follow to answer questions from the audience.
Following the presentations and Q&A, the group will vote by ballot and majority rules. Although it may not be your first choice, you are still obligated to donate.
If your name is drawn and you make a presentation and your charity is not chosen, you will still be eligible to put your name in the drawing at the next meeting.
Only members who have signed a commitment form may nominate charities.
For your tax purposes, all checks will be made out to the chosen organization. If you are unable to attend, give your check to a member to deliver on your behalf.
The charity/non-profit/worthy cause must agree to NOT use the donors' names for future solicitations or give the information out to the public. If the charity/non-profit/worthy cause does not adhere to this condition, they will be removed from any future consideration.
