Calling for Charity Nominations
One of the areas of focus for us in 2017 continues be increasing charity nominations. Ideally, we would like to target 6-8 nominations for each event, but usually only get 3-4, sometimes less.
While we have seen an improvement, we are once again strongly encouraging our members to take that extra step and consider nominating a charity at our upcoming event. The effort to do so is minimal – an hour or so to prepare and a 3 minute “elevator pitch” to provide an overview of the charity and why they are meaningful to you.
All nominations should be local registered charities that serve Halton, to whom $10,000 will make a meaningful difference, and that are able to issue individual tax receipts. Attached is a list of some charities that fit this criteria. If you are involved, associated or familiar with one of these charities, please consider nominating them.
To drive more charity nominations, we have also relaxed our rules and now allow your kids (youth grades 7 to 12) to nominate and pitch a charity with you and/or on your behalf. It's a great way to lead by example and show them how we are making a difference. In return, will we also give your kids 4 volunteer hours for researching, preparing and presenting their charity pitch. How amazing would it be for your kids to be able to report back to their school, and to put on their resume, that they were part of a group that raised over $10,000 for a local charity in under an hour!
Remember that members are always encouraged to "pre-clear" their nominations in advance of our event. Click here for details on how to nominate a charity, and please email us with details of the charity you wish to nominate.
