Any member who is a member in good standing may nominate an organization. Nomination forms must be submitted no later than one week prior to the meeting. If they are submitted after that date, they will be held for the next meeting.
Members may only nominate one charity per meeting. Members may change their nomination each meeting, but they must submit a form if it is a new charity.
At our meetings, we will randomly draw three member's nomination forms. The nominating members of the selected organizations will make a five minute presentation about the organization to the group. Should the nominating member wish, she may ask another member to make the presentation about the charity on her behalf. For more information on presenting, CLICK HERE
Organizations under consideration must serve Victoria and surrounding area, be in existence for at least one year, and be a registered charity. They must also agree to provide individual tax receipts and to keep member information confidential. Charities are eligible to re-enter the draw every 3 years for consideration.
Our Organizing Committee will determine if your charity meets our eligibility criteria. Someone will contact you within a few days if there is a problem with the charity's eligibility.
