FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
YES! The more ladies that commit to supporting our community organization, the more funds flow back into our community. There are a couple ways to join; the first being come to a meeting. We meet four times a year, which means four opportunities to come by in person and fill out your membership form. You can also download our membership form here, fill it out and email it back to [email protected]
That’s totally okay. We understand that there will be times when you are unable to attend a meeting. You can still donate your $100 by etransfer to [email protected] with the password donation or write a cheque to the winning charity once it’s announced.
Of course. Come check us out and bring your friends. We are confident you will love this organization as much as we do. Just remember, if you’re not a member, you can’t vote.
Yes, guests are welcome. Just remember, again, that only members are allowed to vote.
By being in attendance at one of our meetings. We give an opportunity at the end of each meeting for members to nominate their choices for the next meeting. Once we receive all nominations, we will confirm that they are registered and local. Charities can be nominated again, and again as long as they were not a chosen charity. All chosen charities must wait a full-year before they can be nominated again.
Yes, it is.
Absolutely not! 100 Women Who Care Grande Prairie is organized and operated entirely by the organizing committee 100% of the money raised at our meetings goes directly to the selected organizations.
100 Women Who Care Grande Prairie collects your personal information (including name, address, email address, phone number) strictly for the purpose of maintaining our membership list. 100 Women Who Care Grande Prairie will not sell, give or otherwise share your personal information without your express consent unless required by law. We do like to recognize our members via social media and other venues. If a member would like to remain anonymous they must let us know at the time of joining.
Because the goal of 100 Women Who Care Grande Prairie is to make a large donation on behalf of the whole group, the answer is no. We want to be able to support this endeavor and give $10,000+ dollars at a time to make a large impact in our community with each member’s donation being part of the larger donation. This is the power of joining forces! We also need to be able to track your donations so that you get credit for the donation and remain eligible for submitting charities and voting at meetings.
Yes! Most charities that are nominated by our members have some sort of National head office, but we make sure that all charities nominated have a local sector, program or service in our community and that’s what our money will be supporting.
This is a great question, and one we recently bought forward to our members. 100 Women GP has decided that all presenting charities (referring to charities that present at a meeting but are not the chosen charity) must skip one meeting before they are allowed to be nominated again. This will allow us to give a better chance for more charities in our city to be chosen and get some light shed on them and their amazing work.
