♥ Each member commits to donating $100 per meeting 4 times a year ($400 Total per year). Teams of 2 or 4 are permitted, so a group of 4 could donate $25 each at each meeting. ♥ Meetings are conducted in one hour or less ♥ Any member who has signed a Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may submit an Organization Submission Fact Sheet, at the start of each meeting, to nominate an organization for consideration at a meeting. There is also a Presentation Info Sheet to assist you in preparing for your presentation. ♥ The nominating member of two randomly selected organizations will make a five minute presentation about the organization to the group and a Q and A will follow. ♥ Each member will then vote for one of the two organizations. ♥ After votes are tallied, each member will write a cheque for $100 that night, to the organization receiving the most votes and the selected organization will receive a group donation of $10,000! (once we reach 100 women contributing $100/each) ♥ Organizations under consideration must serve the community of Central York Region encompassing Aurora, Newmarket, East Gwillimbury and surrounding area, and provide individual tax receipts to contributing members. ♥ Members who are unable to attend a meeting are expected to give their cheque to a friend or another member to deliver on her behalf or mail it in prior to the meeting. ♥ An organization not selected at one meeting may be submitted again at a subsequent meeting. ♥ A successful organization is not eligible for future consideration but the nominating member may submit the name of another organization. ♥ Ties will be decided by 1 further vote. If a tie persists, the membership will then vote to either (1) randomly select one of the tied organizations by draw; or (2) divide the group donation equally between the tied organizations. ♥ The selected organization must agree not to give out member information to any third parties except for tax purposes. ♥ Each meeting will open with a five minute update on how the funds donated at the previous meeting were used by the successful organization.
