How it works:
In each of our quarterly meetings, members will drop a slip with their charity of choice into our voting box. Three charity submissions will be randomly drawn at the meeting, and each selected member will have 5 minutes to give their presentation. The group votes on a winning charity, and checks are filled out.
The finer details:
1. Meetings are required to be one hour or less.
2. Each Member commits to donating $25 - $100 per meeting.
3. Members bring a check to be written out directly to the winning charity. If a member is unable to attend a meeting she may give her check to another member to deliver on her behalf or she may mail it in before/after the meeting.
4. Each member votes - the majority rules. Even if your choice does not win, all members are responsible for writing a check to the winning charity. A two-tie results in a re-vote. If a 3-way tie occurs, one of the selected charities will be chosen at random.
5. All donations will be provided to New York area charities. Donations benefiting national charities will not be considered. Charities MUST be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
6. Members who wish to submit a charity for consideration must be ready to make a 3-5 minute presentation at the meeting about their local charity of choice.
7. A 5 minute Q&A session will take place immediately following each of the three presentations.
8. If a member's charity wins the group vote, that charity is not eligible to be considered for future donations; however, the member is still eligible to submit the name of another charity at the next meeting.
9. The winning charity must agree not to use the names of the 100WomenNYC members for future solicitations or give the information out for any other public use or purpose. A presentation from the winning charity will be given at the next meeting to explain how our funds have been used.
10. If you have missed more than 2 payments, you will no longer be considered a member and will be taken off our mailing list.
