Only members in good standing are eligible to nominate a charity. A member in good standing is one who contributed at the previous meeting.
Nominations must be submitted one week prior to the quarterly meeting for pre-approval. Meetings are held on Thursdays, so nominations must be received by the end of the day on the Thursday before the meeting. You will receive a personal email from 100WWC-FV confirming receipt of your nomination. If you have not received a confirmation at least three days before the meeting, please contact us.
The nominating member must be present at the meeting or the nomination will not be included in the drawing.
Our aim is to avoid supporting groups or causes that could distract us from a collaborative and positive effort, so please, no religious, political or highly controversial organizations. If you have questions about this, just ask.
To be considered for an award, an organization must meet the following criteria:
Local and based in Hartford County or a local affiliate of a national charitable organization. The funds must stay in our community.
A non-profit recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization.
Agree to provide an acknowledgement letter for tax deduction purposes to 100WWC/FV to share with its members.
Willing to send a representative to a future meeting to share how the money will be spent.
Must agree not to create, sell, or distribute a list with our members' contact information, and agree not to solicit our members directly for further contributions.
