Four times a year, we gather together for just one hour to socialize, network, say hello to a friend or two, then vote on a local charity that could benefit from a donation from our group. Our focus is on charitable organizations that support the New Tecumseth, Adjala-Tosorontio, and Essa areas.
Our meetings are short and to-the-point, with a low commitment of only four times a year, $400 a year. If you are unable to make every meeting, you can ask a friend to submit a “proxy vote” on your behalf. If you are unable to commit to $400 a year, you can join with a friend or too and donate as a team.
At the meetings, three pre-selected charities make a brief presentation to tell us how they would use our donation of funds. At most meetings, we also hear from a previous charity on how our funds have been used.
After the presentations, we vote individually for our charity of choice using a written ballot. The votes are tallied and the winning charity is announced. For each meeting, you are asked to bring $100 payable by cheque or e-transfer. Once we learn the name of the chosen charity, you fill in your cheque with that organization’s name.
And that’s it! LOCAL WOMEN = LOCAL IMPACT! Would you like to join us? Read more HERE on how to join our group. Have more questions? Check out other pages of our site and visit our FAQ page for more information.
