how does it work?
POWER of 100+ Fox Cities meets four times per year for one hour. During our meeting, three charities will present for 5 minutes, providing details about their charity and how it operates in the Fox Cities region. They will give information on how the "Impact Award" will benefit individuals served by the charity. A brief question and answer period will follow each presentation.
After a group vote (majority rules) the winner of the Impact Award will be announced. All committed members will present their checks payable directly to the selected charity. Additional checks may be written to the other two charities presented if so desired.
If you are unable to attend the meeting you may send your signed, blank check with a fellow member or mail it to POWER of 100+ Fox Cities, PO Box 7014, Appleton, WI 54912. All checks need to be turned into POWER of 100+ within 5 days of the meeting. This will make it possible for us to award the funds to the winning charity in a timely manner. It will also assist us in getting any corporate matching dollars to the charity as soon as possible.
POWER of 100+ committed members may nominate as many charities for the Impact Award as desired. Impact Awards will be given to charities or causes serving the defined Fox Cities region. National charities will not be considered. However, local branches of national charities are eligible for consideration. All charities will be reviewed and approved by the Leadership Committee. Eligible charities must have 501(c)(3) status and have been in operation for a minimum of 2 years. Please refer to the charity section of the website for more information.
