Are there other ways to help the charities that have been nominated and/or presented at a quarterly meeting?
Yes! Take a look at our list of List of Approved Charities for links to each of their websites. Each charity will have a list of ways you can help them carry out their mission.
Absolutely zero! 100+ Women Who Care Tucson is organized and operated entirely by big-hearted women who volunteer their time. We have no employees. Our operating expenses are offset by generous sponsor donations. 100% of funds donated at a meeting go directly to the selected charity! The $3.90 charge is to cover the credit card charge and the admin fee.
Short answer: NO, the goal of 100+ Women Who Care Tucson is to make one BIG donation on behalf of each group within our chapter. To make a BIG impact, we want to give thousands of dollars at the end of each group meeting. The only way to do that is to make each member’s donation part of the larger donation. This is the power of being a member. We also need to be able to track your donations, so you get credit for the donation and remain in good standing. Only members in good standing can nominate and vote.
Yes, you receive a tax receipt immediately from 100+ Women’s financial sponsor The Women’s Foundation.
No, a charity may only be nominated by a member.
If a member has an affiliation with a charity, i.e. they are an officer, board member, employee or volunteer, they are allowed to nominate that charity and present on its behalf.
The most common type of tax-exempt nonprofit organization falls under category 501(c)(3), whereby a nonprofit organization is exempt from federal income tax if its activities have the following purposes: charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering amateur sports competition, or preventing cruelty to children or animals. For more information please visit the IRS website. Before submitting your nomination, we also recommend that you do some research on GuideStar and Charity Navigator to learn more about the charity. Our Charity Selection Guide will also guide you in determining if the charity has a solid foundation and is trending in a positive fiscal direction.
For the purposes of 100+ Women Who Care
about Tucson, all charitable organizations up for consideration must be local. A local project associated with a national charity may be considered if 100% of the donated funds stay in the Tucson Metropolitan community.
