Your time is limited but you want to contribute to the community on a bigger scale than you could on your own.
You are willing to commit to a 1 hour meeting and $100 donation every three months.
You want to learn about – or let other women know about – the amazing work being done by local non-profits in the Las Vegas area.
You want to be part of a caring and amazing group of women that are making an immediate and positive impact in our community.
You want your donation to go directly to a local charity.
How it works:
Meetings are held 4 times a year - February, May, August, and November. Each member makes a $100 donation online via Growfund prior to each meeting.
Members can nominate a local charity to receive the combined donation. There are eligibility requirements and nominations must be approved at least 2 weeks prior to the next meeting. Three approved charities will be randomly selected no later than 1 week prior to the meeting, and the nominating member will be notified via email.
At the meetings, the nominating members will make an informal presentation, up to 5 minutes, to the group about their charity’s mission and why it is deserving of the members’ vote. Each presentation will be followed by a brief Q & A period. (Nominating members must be in attendance and available to present the charity to the group. If a member is not able to attend another charity will be drawn.)
Following the three presentations, an anonymous vote will be taken and the charity with the most votes will receive the combined donation of all members.
Donations are sent to the charity by Growfund (within 2 weeks of the meeting).
Two-way ties will be decided by one more round of votes. If a tie persists, the two names that are tied will be drawn at random.
Each member contributes $100 regardless of which charity wins the vote. Members who are not in attendance must make their contribution before the meeting. There is no proxy voting.
Charitable contribution receipts are provided by Growfund via email when a donation is made.
Next meeting: Wednesday, February 3rd @ 7 pm via Zoom
