FAQs

Can I bring a friend to the meeting?

Absolutely! Anyone is welcome to attend and observe the meeting before deciding if they would like to become a member. If you turn in a Membership Form before the balloting takes place, you will be allowed to vote at your first meeting.

Is my contribution tax deductible?

Checks are written directly to the charity. All nominated charities are 501(c)(3)’s, which means your contribution is tax deductible. Your cancelled check should serve as a receipt for your donation. The charity may also send you a receipt.

How do I donate if I cannot attend the meeting?

Information about the selected charity is posted on our website following the meeting. An email is also sent to the members asking them to mail their check to:

100+ Women Who Care
Dr. Aimee Harris Newon
One Tiffany Pointe Suite 105
Bloomingdale . Illinois . 60108

Can I send my check directly to the charity?

The goal of the Power of 100 is to make a large donation on behalf of the whole organization. We’d like each member’s contribution to be part of this donation. We also keep a log of your contribution, which qualifies you to nominate a charity and vote at the next meeting.

If I’m part of a team and my charity is selected, can all the team members take part in the presentation?

Only one member will be allowed to make a presentation.

Can I nominate a charity and have someone from the charitable organization present on my behalf?

Only members are allowed to make presentations. Charity representatives can become Power of 100 members if they wish to nominate and present on behalf of their charitable organization.

Can more than one member nominate a charity?

Yes, multiple nominations can increase the chances of a charity being selected for presentation. Each member (or team) must submit her own charity submission form for the charity.

If my charity was not selected at the quarterly meeting do I need to resubmit it for consideration at the next meeting?

No, your charity will automatically be considered in future meetings as long as your membership contributions are current and the charity continues to maintain its 501(c)(3) status.

Is there a limit on how many charities a member can nominate?

No, there is no limit.
