Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive:
Once I register and sign the commitment form, am I a lifer?
Your registration commits you to a minimum of the next 4 meetings. Your membership is renewed automatically after unless you request otherwise.
What happens if I cannot attend a meeting?
If a member cannot attend, there are some options. You can send a blank signed cheque with another member for them to vote on your behalf. Once the charity is voted on, they can complete the appropriate name on the cheque for submission.
The other option is to submit your cheque within 5 days to one of the 100 Woolwich Women volunteers. Online donations will be available for certain charities through Canada Helps in which you will incur a small service fee in addition to the $100.00.
How do charitable organizations in Woolwich get nominated?
Members of 100 Woolwich Women may submit up to 3 nominations at the time of their registration. The charitable organization must be a registered not-for-profit or charity able to provide tax receipts for donations. Once the charity has been selected to receive the group’s donation, it will not be put up for reconsideration for another 2 years.
How long will the meetings last?
The intention is for the meetings to be no longer than 60 minutes. There will be plenty of opportunity to socialize before and after the meeting with your fellow members.
Can I bring a friend to the meeting?
You most definitely can! However, in order to vote she must complete the commitment form and become a member. Otherwise, she is more than welcome to observe.
Does any of my donation go towards administration costs?
100% of the money raised at our meetings goes towards the selected organization. 100 Woolwich Women Who Care will be operated by a team of volunteers.
