Each member must commit to donating $100 per meeting ($400 per year). You must commit to a one year membership and are considered an active member until you notify us otherwise.
The donations will be given to charitable, non-profit organizations serving the Bucks County area. No national charities will be considered. The purpose is for the contribution to stay 100% in the community.
Any member who is present at the meeting can nominate a charity for consideration. The names are put into a hat, and three are randomly pulled to present their case at the next quarterly meeting.
Each charitable, non-profit organization that is under consideration will be given five minutes to make a presentation at the meeting. Either the nominating member or a representative from the charity can present.
The group will vote by ballot and majority rules. Although the charity you voted for may not win, you are still obligated to donate to the winning charity. Those charities who did not win can be re-nominated at subsequent meetings.
For your tax purposes, all checks will be made out to the chosen organization. An email will go out to those members who are not in attendance so they can mail in their checks.
The charitable, non-profit organization must agree to NOT use the donors' names for future solicitations or give the information out to the public. If the charitable, non-profit organization does not adhere to this condition, they will be removed from any future consideration.
