Membership Obligations and Rights
Meetings are an hour or less and will be held four times a year.
Each member, or member team, commits to donating $100 per meeting ($400 annually).
If you are unable to commit to $400 per year, you can find a friend and join as a team. Teams of 2-4 women may share a commitment together. Each team has only one vote per meeting.
Active members/teams are eligible to nominate a charity. To be considered for selection, the nominations must be submitted with a completed charity nomination form.
At each meeting, members vote to select a charity. Only members who are current in their contributions are eligible to vote.
Members bring a blank check that is written out directly to the selected charity. If a member is unable to attend a meeting they may give their signed, blank check to another member to deliver on their behalf.
Members not attending the meeting will be notified by their team leader and should plan to get their check to the group within 3 business days.

How It Works
The Power of 100 is an idea borrowed from similar organizations that have sprung up across the nation. Each quarter, members nominate charitable organizations that work in the Red River Valley area. Members come together for a brief one hour meeting where three charities are randomly selected. The nominating member makes a brief presentation about the organization and why they deserve to be selected, all members in attendance vote, and each member donates $100 to the selected charity. Each event has the potential to generate $10,000 for a local charity!
