To join the group, you must complete a Registration Form. By joining, each member commits to donating $100 per meeting, four times per year (four consecutive meetings from the date of joining the organization).
Each meeting’s nominated charities are selected from the list of charities submitted by members upon joining. Nominated charities must meet certain eligibility requirements. Charitable organizations under consideration must serve the Edmonton area and provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing members. The recipient charity must agree not to give out member information to any third parties, except for Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) for tax purposes.
NOTE: Tax receipts are provided directly to the members by the recipient charity. Please do not contact The 100 YEG for your tax receipt, as it is not ours to give.
AT THE MEETING
Before each meeting, three charities are drawn by the Organizing Committee from the list of nominated charities. The chosen organizations are then invited to hold a presentation at our next meeting. After the presentations, a vote is held, and the charity with the most votes by simple majority will be the recipient. Ties will be decided by further votes. If a tie persists, the membership will vote to select one of the tied organizations. If a second tie occurs, the membership committee will break the tie by coin toss.
All members must provide an e-transfer to The 100 YEG in order to receive voting privileges. All monies collected will be immediately given to the voted charity.
NOTE: Donations made directly to the recipient charity and online donations do not count toward your commitment. Only e-transfers made to The 100 YEG before our quarterly meetings count.
The recipient charity is invited back to the next meeting to explain to all members the big impact their donations have made. The recipient charity is eligible to present again in three years. The other two non-recipient charities may present again after one year. When possible, a small donation will also be provided to the other two charities via fundraising methods at each meeting.
Members who do not send an e-transfer before the voting will not be considered in good standing and will not be able to vote until caught up on outstanding donations.
