 HOW IT WORKS 

The Basics

  • Each member commits to a $100 quarterly contribution

  • Members can nominate charitable organizations that benefit the Hamilton County area

  • Members attend a 1 hour quarterly meeting where three charities are randomly drawn from all submitted, and one is selected by member votes

  • Each member writes a $100 check directly to the selected charity that evening

​​
It's a simple, but POWERFUL, process.  At each meeting we have the power to generate a $10,000 (or larger!) donation for one local non-profit!

Membership Obligations & Rights

  • Each member, or member team, commits to $100 per meeting ($400 annually)

  • All members must have a completed and signed Membership Commitment Form on file and stay current on their contributions to maintain their right to nominate and vote on non-profits, even if they cannot attend a meeting


Non-profits

  • To be considered, non-profits must have 501(c)(3) status and be based in Hamilton County, Indiana

  • Non-profits receiving our donations will agree to refrain from creating, selling, or distributing a list with our members' contact information


Voting Process

  • Members wishing to nominate non-profits will write their name and the name of the non-profit on a ballot and put it into the hat upon arrival at the meeting

  • At the beginning of each meeting, 3 non-profits will be randomly drawn from the hat

  • The 3 nominating members will each make a 5 minute presentation about their non-profit

  • A brief question and answer period will follow the presentations

  • Voting ballots will be distributed and all eligible members in attendance will submit their votes

  • The non-profit receiving the most votes will be awarded the donations collected at that meeting

  • A vote resulting in a tie will be subject to revote between the tied non-profits. A tie during a revote will be decided by choosing one of the tied non-profits at random from the hat

  • Any non-profit not chosen to receive the donations is eligible for nomination at the next meeting. The non-profit that won the vote will not be eligible to be nominated again for a period of two years.


Donation Process

  • Once the selected charity is announced, all members in attendance will write a check directly to the selected non-profit and turn it in before leaving the meeting

  • All donations must be submitted by check

  • For members that are not able to attend the meeting, instructions on how to submit their checks by mail will be provided
