Here's How It Works...

  • Each member (or group) commits to donating $100 per meeting (quarterly or $400 Total per year)
  • Meetings are conducted in one hour or less each quarter (4 hours per year)
  • Any member (or group donating $100) who has signed a Membership Commitment Form and who is current with his/their donations may submit a Charity Nomination Form to nominate an organization for consideration at a meeting.
  • The nominating members of three randomly selected organizations will make a five minute presentation about the organization to the group.
  • Each member will then vote for one of the three organizations.
  • After votes are tallied, each member will write a cheque for $100 to the organization receiving the most votes and the selected organization will receive a group donation of $10,000!
  • Organizations under consideration must serve the community of Barrie or surrounding areas and provide individual tax receipts to contributing members.
  • Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless.
  • Members who are unable to attend a meeting are expected to give her cheque to a friend or another member to deliver on her behalf.
  • An organization not selected at one meeting may be submitted again at a subsequent meeting.
  • A successful organization is not eligible for future consideration for 1 year, but the nominating member may submit the name of another organization.
  • Ties will be decided by further votes. If a tie persists, the membership will 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.
