How It Works

  • Each member commits to donating $100 per meeting, four times a year.
  • Meetings are diligently conducted in one hour or less.
  • Any member who has signed a Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may submit a nonprofit to present. 
  • Three randomly selected nonprofits will be presented at each meeting.
  • Only the member may present.
  • Each presentation will be limited to 5 minutes followed by a 5 minute Q&A.
  • Attending members vote for one of the three nonprofit.
  • Each member will write a check for $100 to the nonprofit receiving the most votes.
  • Non-attending members are required to donate to the selected nonprofit.
  • The selected organization will receive a group donation of $10,000 or more!
  • Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the nonprofit.
  • Nonprofits under consideration must be a 501(c)(3) and serve the Cleveland area. 
  • A nonprofit which was not selected at one meeting may be submitted at subsequent meetings.
  • A selected nonprofit is not eligible for future consideration for 1 year, however the nominating member may submit the name of another nonprofit.
  • Ties will be decided by a run-off vote.
  • The selected nonprofit may not give out member information to any third parties or solicit our members for any purpose.
  • Each meeting will open with a five minute update on how the funds donated at the previous meeting were used by the selected nonprofit.
