How We Work

  • Each member commits to donating $100 per event, four times a year. We ask for a minimum one year commitment. 

  • Events are conducted in approximately one hour.

  • Any attending member may nominate a charity for consideration at an event. Click here for more details.

  • Three eligible charities will be randomly selected at the meeting to be voted on. 

  • Each member that nominated one of the three selected charities will make a brief, informal presentation about the organization to the group. Click here for guidance on what to cover.

  • Each member in attendance will then vote for one of the three charities. The charity with the most votes will be the recipient charity.

  • Each member will write a cheque for $100 to the recipient charity for a total group donation of $10,000 or more.

  • Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless. Members can, of course, feel free to donate their money or time privately to the other two charities if they wish.

  • Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the charity in due course.

  • Members who are unable to attend an event are expected to give their cheque to another member to deliver on his behalf or email us at to make other arrangements.

  • Charities under consideration must serve the Halton Region and provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing the members.

  • A charity not selected at one meeting may be submitted again at a subsequent meeting.

  • A winning charity is not eligible for future consideration but the nominating member may submit the name of another charity.

  • The recipient charity must agree not to give out member information to any third parties except for tax purposes.
