Make an impact
Twice a year, we implore 100+ women to contribute $100, to raise $10,000 for one local organization. Together we can make a big difference.
How it works
NOMINATE a CHARITY
Members get to nominate charities which are vetted by our steering committee for size, the impact the donation will have and their 501c3 status. Once nominations are approved, all members will vote via SurveyMonkey for the three charities they want to see represented at the next event.
ATTEND AN EVENT
Events are held bi annually in Spring & Fall and while the business component where charities present and members vote only lasts an hour, the venue will be open before and after for registration and refreshments.
LISTEN TO CHARITY PRESENTATIONS
Representatives of the three charities each make a five-minute presentation about their work and what our contribution will accomplish in their organization.
VOTE FOR ONE CHARITY
All attendees get to vote for the charity they think deserve the funds. The charity with the most votes takes home everything raised that night.
All attendees bring a $100 check set to be made out to the selected recipient. The check will be collected at the time of the event and will go directly to the charity chosen.
Why not DividE the earnings equally?
Similar groups have found that charities would prefer a 33% chance at receiving a sum that can really make a difference rather than the smaller contribution. That said, our organization believes in making a big impact, so we welcome individual or business sponsors for either one or both of the non-recipient charities.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, and the recipient charity will provide receipts for both members and sponsors of the event.
