100+ Women Quarterly Donation Decision Meeting
October 19 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
We are a group of women interested in supporting our community. We keep it local & have an impact that WE can SEE! We meet for 1 hour the 3rd Tuesday of January, April, July & October at McGohan-Brabender. Visit our website for more info & how to join!
Here is how it works: At your first meeting, or on our website, you fill out a commitment form stating that you will donate $100 four times a year to the local charity of the groups choice. You are given a slip of paper to vote at the meeting. Members who are interested in presenting a charity for consideration to the group put their name on another slip of paper and put it into a bag. Only members may present a charity to the group. All charities must be local 501(c)3 and non-controversial. At the beginning of each meeting, 3 names are chosen at random from the bag. If you are chosen to present your charity to the group you have 5 minutes (timed) to give your pitch. After all 3 charities are presented there are 5 minutes of question/answer about the groups. Then we each write our choice on our slip of paper and they are collected and tallied. Whoever gets the most votes wins and we then each write our check directly to that organization for $100 and pass it to the front (Wow, a big donation in 1 hour with no paperwork!). If you can’t attend a meeting you must send your check with another member or mail it. Also at each meeting we get a brief presentation from a previous recipient as to how our money has been put to good use. You can put your name in to present a charity to the group every time or not at all. If you get to present your charity and it is not chosen you can present again another meeting if you are picked. In our fourteen years together we have supported over 50 local charities and given over a Million Dollars! For more information go to www.100womenwhocaredayton.weebly.com
