A donation of $200, 4 hours/year

that’s all it takes to help a charity close to your heart!

We are a non-profit organization with a goal of bringing women together to leverage small, individual donations into larger, collective grants to invest in Northumberland-based charities.

HOW IT WORKS

Each member commits to donating $50, four times a year (annual charitable donation of $200).


Donations must be made in advance of or at the start of each meeting.

Any member who has signed a Membership Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may submit a Charity nomination form to nominate an organization for consideration at a meeting.

Three registered charitable organizations will be drawn at the end of each meeting to be considered for the next vote. Members will then vote for one of these charities at the following meeting.

The nominating members will make a five-minute presentation about the organization to the group and a Q&A session will follow.

Each member who has signed a Membership Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may vote (by ballot) for one of the three organizations. Votes may be made by proxy by another member or via email.

The organization to receive the most ballots will receive a collective grant in the amount of the membership contributions at the time of the meeting, for example, 100 members will generate a grant of $5,000.

Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless.

Members will receive a tax receipt from Local Food for Local Good (the coordinating organization).
