How do we do what we do?

  •  Meetings are always one hour or less. 

  • Each member commits to donating $100 per meeting ($400 per year). 

  • You bring cash or a blank check (written out directly to the selected charity NOT to 100+ Women after vote) to each meeting. If you can't attend, you may give your cash or check to another member to deliver on your behalf or mail it in.*  Your friend can vote on your behalf, if you wish.

  • All donations will be given to New River Valley area charities only.

  • No national (or controversial) charities will be considered. Contributions must be utilized 100% locally.

  • Members who wish to present on behalf of a charity will be drawn out of a 2 buckets (never presented/presented but didn't win) at random. Three (2 from never presented/1 from presented) may present at each meeting. If there is an immediate need at the time of the meeting, it may be presented as one of the choices.

  • Each presenter (must be a committed member) will be given five minutes to make a presentation at the meeting.

  • A Q&A session will take place immediately following the three presentations and directly preceding member voting.

  • The group will vote by anonymous ballot, and the majority rules. Even if your choice does not win, all members will write their check to the same winning charity.

  • If you present a charity and it is not selected, you are eligible to put your name in the drawing at the next meeting.

  • Winning charities will wait one year to be eligible for election. Note: Organizations that have not yet been drawn will be given priority.

  • Any given organization may only be submitted into the draw bucket ONCE per meeting.

  • The charity must agree not to use member's names for future solicitations or share the information in any way. If the charity does not adhere to this condition, they will be removed from future consideration. The charity is required to send a representative to the next meeting to describe how the funds have been used.

*Checks need to be received no later than ONE week following the meetings in order to gain full advantage of our matching grant.

Here is a short video that does a terrific job explaining 100+ Women Who Care.
