How will the charity be chosen?

 

  • Members who wish to submit a charity for consideration must submit a Charity Nomination Form. The form must be completed in its entirety or it will not be selected as one of the final three nominations.

  • The form must be submitted at least 1 day prior to the meeting.

  • Only members with a signed Membership Form and who are in current good standing on their contributions may submit a charity for consideration.

  • Three charities will be drawn at the beginning of the meeting for presentation.

  • The sponsoring member, or member of the team, who submitted the selected charity should be ready to make a 5-minute presentation at the meeting.
    NOTE: A representative is welcome to attend and speak on behalf of the charity as long as they are accompanied at the podium with the nominating member.

  • There will be a 5-minute question and answer period following each presentation.

How will members vote?

 

  •  Following the presentations of the three drawn charities, each eligible member or team will vote by ballot. The charity receiving the most votes receive the donation.

  • In the case of a 2-­way tie, members will be provided with the names of the two charities and a second vote will be taken. If the second vote results in another tie, a charity will be randomly picked by putting both names in a hat and drawing a single charity for that month.

  • In the case of a 3-­way tie a charity will be randomly drawn by putting all three names in a hat and drawing a single charity.

  • If a member’s charity is chosen, that charity is not eligible to be considered for selection for a period of two year; however, the member can submit the name of another charity.

  • Checks are written directly to the local organization, not to The Power of 100. Your cancelled check is your receipt for tax purposes.
