100 Who Care - Franklin County

Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm

 

Founded in 2017, 100 Who Care - Franklin County is one of more than 400 similar groups located worldwide that focus on giving to local charitable organizations. See our FAQs on our Facebook page for more info about the alliance and our Franklin County chapter.

How it Works:

 

Each member commits to giving $33 to a local nonprofit when we meet three times per year (a total of $99/year). Any member is eligible to nominate a Franklin County-based non-profit, and at meetings three of these are picked at random. The nominating member then has five minutes to speak about the organization, with time afterwards for Q&A. The members then anonymously vote for their favorite of the three, the votes are tallied, and each member writes a check for $33 on the spot for a collective gift to the winning organization.

 

We will hold our inaugural meeting on March 22 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. at Shea Theater in Turners Falls. We’ll start with some casual networking (beer will be for sale) and the business part of the meeting will start around 6:00.

 

If you’re ready to say, “sign me up!” then congratulations, you will be a founding member. Please fill out this commitment form. If you aren’t able to complete this form electronically, you can fill out a hard copy at the event.

 

If you’re not sure yet, please come to the inaugural meeting and see what it’s all about. Feel free to email questions to 100wcfc@gmail.com after reading these FAQs.

 

We encourage you to forward this to your friends or invite them to the first meeting. Just ask them to include contact info in their message to us. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
