How do Guelph charities get considered for 100WWCG support?

Simple!  Get women to sign up to be members of 100WWCG!   Each member of 100WWCG is eligible to nominate one local charity of their choosing.  

Helpful tip:  A charity CAN be nominated by multiple members. This increases its chances of being drawn for consideration. There must always be three different charities for our members to consider, but multiple nominations for one charity DO increase the odds that a charity will be drawn from the hat.

We know from other jurisdictions that there is a benefit to all three charities considered at each meeting because of the exposure each one gains from this opportunity. These charities may expect to gain some volunteers and/or donations from people who simply did not know about them before! Remember, many of our members are joining so that they can learn more about our local charities. This is a great way to do it!

What requirements must a charity meet to be eligible to receive our donation?

In order to be considered at a meeting, the organization must meet the following eligibility requirements. It must:

  • serve the Guelph community, with the funds remaining in Guelph
  • be a registered charity in good standing with the CRA
  • be able to provide tax receipts for donations (no start-ups)
  • have not received funds from 100WWCG in the prior three years
  • be registered with Canada Helps

IF we were to consider supporting a national organization, it would only be under the agreement that our funds would stay here in Guelph.

Do I have to fill out the nomination form for every meeting?

No! Once your charity nomination has been vetted and approved, it will automatically go in the hat every quarter for a chance to be drawn. Your nomination stays in our system until it is either chosen by the membership to receive our funds (in which case it is removed and can be nominated again in three years), or you inform us you wish to withdraw your nomination.

Do I have to nominate a charity?

Nomination of a charity is a privilege of membership, not an obligation. You may come to the meetings simply to vote and make your donation, but please consider more actively supporting one of the many worthy causes that abound in our city by making a nomination.
