FAQ

Frequently asked questions

HOW DO WE DETERMINE WHICH CHARITY WILL RECEIVE THE DONATION?


Any member can submit a local charity for consideration and the organizations will be vetted by the Leadership Team. The nominating member must submit a Charity Nomination Form (found here ) at least 6 weeks prior to the next scheduled event. The three organizations who present at the event are picked at random from amongst the vetted charities. At the event, after hearing from the 3 charities, the membership will vote as to who will recieve the funds. The 2 charities that are not elected by the membership return to the pre-vetted bank of charities and will have the opportunity to be chosen at a future event. Events are organized thematically in order to inclusively target the various challenges facing the Montreal community.




WHAT IF I CAN NOT ATTEND AN EVENT?


You are still committed to donating to the chosen charity at events you can not attend. We will provide a link for where you can make your $100 donation to the elected charity. You can also give a friend the right to proxy vote for you. Simply provide us with an email stating you allow them to vote on your behalf.




WILL I GET A TAX RECEIPT?


Yes, we donate to registered charities who will issue a receipt directly to you.




HOW MUCH OF MY DONATION GOES TO 100 WOMEN WHO CARE MTL?


Not a cent. We are 100% volunteer organized and operated.




HOW DO WE MAKE OUR DONATION?


Donations will be made by credit card using the Canada Helps website. The link will be provided at the event as well as by email.




HOW LONG IS THE MEMBERSHIP FOR?


Joining 100+ Women Who Care Montreal is a commitment and not a legally binding contract. We understand that you may have to leave or pause your membership. You can notify us by email. We would of course be sad to see you go and hope you would come back soon.
