How is the organization that receives the group donation chosen?

Provided the Charity Nomination Form is filled out at least two weeks in advance of a meeting, and it has been vetted and approved, the nominating member and their charity will automatically be entered in the draw each quarter. The steering committee will draw three different charities approximately one week in advance, and the three successful presenters will be notified, giving them time to prepare their presentations.

At the meeting, after the opening remarks, the three charities being considered will be announced, and the nominating members, or a charity representative, will be asked to make a 5 minute, simple presentation in favour of their charity. The membership in attendance then cast their votes.

If your bid is unsuccessful, you are welcome to follow the same procedure at the next meeting for another opportunity.

If your charity IS chosen, you are then free to nominate another one in the future!

We encourage all our members to participate by submitting the names of local, deserving, charitable organizations.
