How It Works

  • We meet four (4) times a year on the second Tuesday of the month January 12, April 12, July 12 and October 11, 2016.  Meeting 7:00 – 8:00 PM Bloomingdale Golf Club
  • Each member donates $100 per meeting ($400 per year)
  • The donations will be given to charities/non-profits/worthy causes serving locally in the Western Suburbs
  • Controversial charities/non-profits/worthy causes will be avoided and only official charities/non-profits (501c3) will be considered unless there is a local worthy cause that has been researched.  If there is a worthy cause, the money will be handled by a bank, with a trustee administering the fund to be issued checks after receiving receipts.  All charities/non-profits/worthy causes must be submitted in writing using the “Charitable Organizations Fact Sheet” (included) in order to help research all possible recipients
  • No national program will be considered because the mission is for 100% of the contributions to stay in the local community
  • Any member may put a suggestion she has researched in the drawing at each meeting; three will be chosen for consideration.  If there is an immediate/emergency need at the time of the meeting it can be presented as one of the three choices
  • Each member chosen (3) of the 100+ Women Who Care will be given five (5) minutes to make a presentation.  No representative of an organization may make the presentation, unless the representative is also a member of 100+ Women Who Care
  • The membership will vote and majority rules.  Even if a member’s first choice is not selected, each member is committed to donating at each meeting
  • Members unable to attend will give their checks to other members to deliver to the meeting on their behalf, eliminating the need to contact people afterward.  The checks will be considered proxy votes
  • The charities/non-profits/worthy causes not selected will be put back in the drawing for the next meeting if the members who entered them want them to be included
  • Those charities/non-profits/worthy causes selected will have to agree TO NOT USE THE NAMES of members for future solicitations or give the information to the public.  If the beneficiary of the donations does not adhere to this condition, it will be eliminated from any future consideration
  • All email correspondence to the membership will done by blind-coping to keep members information private
