We Gather. We Vote. We Donate.

We Gather

  • Each member commits to donating $100 per event.

  • Spring and fall events are conducted in two hours or less with time at the end for socializing.

We Vote
  • Each registered member will have the opportunity to nominate one charity.

  • Three charities will be selected at random. Please review guidelines for appropriate charities.

  • The nominating members of the three randomly selected organizations will make a brief, informal presentation (no PowerPoint or other materials) about the organization to the group.

  • Each registered and present member may vote (by ballot) for one of the three charities. The charity with the most votes will be the recipient charity.

We Donate
  • All gathered donations will be awarded to the selected charity.

  • Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless of the voting outcome.

  • Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the charity.

 

NOMINATIONS

A Little Becomes
A Lot
  • Charities under consideration must serve the Eastern Shore area and provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing members. Exceptions will be made by a group vote for other charitable donations such as natural disaster relief or a local family in need due to extenuating circumstances.

  • A charity that is not awarded our donation at a meeting may be submitted again at a subsequent meeting.

  • A previously "winning" charity is not eligible for one full year (two meetings) but the nominating member may submit the name of another charity.

  • The recipient charity must agree not to give out member information to any third party except for tax purposes.

Ready To Nonimate?

Great! Here are some details that would be beneficial to share at our meeting if your charity is randomly selected. If you are in question of your charities eligibility status, please allow us to review them prior to the meeting. 

  • What is the name of the charity?

  • Where is the charity located?

  • What is the mission of the charity and what does it mean to you?

  • What is the annual operating budget of the charity? (i.e., how much of an impact will our donation have?)

 

  • How will the donation be used?

  • How will the organization benefit from the donation?

  • Can the charity issue tax receipts? Is the charity a registered 501(3)-C?
