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!
In order to be considered at a meeting, the organization must be:
- Based in Guelph
- A registered charity
- Eligible to provide tax receipts for donations (no start-ups)
- 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.
Only members of 100WWCG can nominate a charity. Any member who has kept up with their contributions can submit one charitable organization for consideration.
The deadline for completing our online Charity Nomination Form is at least two weeks prior to the scheduled meeting date.
No. In order to keep a level playing field and give each member an equal chance at having their charity chosen for consideration, members are limited to having only one charity in the hat at any given time.
Yes, you can! If for any reason you wish to change your charity nomination, just inform us by email at [email protected]. We will remove it from the system, freeing you up to nominate another charity by filling out the Charity Nomination Form.
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.
