In order to be considered at a meeting, the organization must be based in Bruce County and surrounding area and it must be a registered not-for-profit or charitable organization eligible to provide tax receipts for donations. It must be previously established (no start-ups). No national or international charities, programs or organizations will be considered at this time as the current focus is on contributing to our local community.
An organization that is selected for the group donation may not be considered again for three years. The exception is a specific program within a large organization (for example a specific department or program within a hospital), which may be considered again after one year for a different program or department. Any registered member wishing to submit a charitable organization for consideration must complete the on-line Organization Submission Form at least one week prior to the scheduled meeting.
All donations are tax deductible. Cheques are written directly to the charitable organization and NOT to 100 People Who Share. Tax receipts will be issued directly by the charitable organization.
A local organization is selected after a member, who has signed the Commitment Form, puts the name into a hat for a random drawing at the meeting. The organizers of the meeting will collect the names of the organizations from the members as they arrive. At random, three organizations will be selected from the hat. The nominating members will be asked to come up and give a short five-minute presentation as to why the organization they are nominating should receive the donation and then spend five minutes for questions. We encourage members to participate by submitting the names of local, needy, charitable organizations!
