Charities

 

Are you a charity that serves the Saskatoon region? If so, would you like to be considered for a donation? Only members in good standing may nominate a local charity. But the best way to get the word out about your organization is to follow us on Twitter and 'Like' us on Facebook. We are committed to raising awareness of all our local charities, whether or not yours presents, whether or not yours is ultimately a recipient of funds from 100 Men Who Give A Damn! - Saskatoon.

 

Eligibility Requirements

 

Only members of 100 Men Who Give A Damn! - Saskatoon are eligible to nominate a charity/organization. There is no proxy voting.

  • Based in Saskatoon or immediate area.

 

  • A registered charitable organization able to provide charitable tax receipts for donations.

 

  • National or international charties, programs or organizations will be not be considered at this time as the focus is on contributing to our local community. Organizations with a national link may be nominated, however, provided the request is for a project to be delivered in Saskatoon. The funds must stay in Saskatoon.

 

  • Programs within a large organization (e.g., a specific department or program within a hospital), will be considered only if that program is not being funded by the organization or its foundation.

 

Additional information:

 

  • Charities who present at a meeting but are not chosen to receive funds may be nominated again after 6 months.

 

  • The recipient charity must agree to provide tax receipts directly to the donors and to announce the expected mailing date of those receipts to the members on the evening of their selection.

 

  • The recipient charity must on first contact with each donor, ask how frequently the donor can be contacted in the future. Charities are not to assume the donors wish to be on the charity’s mailing list.
