Is 100+ Women Who Care Temecula Valley a non-profit?
No, we are simply a group of women who get together four times a year help support local charities. All meetings are held in facilities that are generously donated and the work of our founding team is all done on a volunteer basis, free of charge. There are no membership dues and 100% of our donations go directly to the winning charities. 100WWCTV does not process any payments such as credit or debit cards, all checks are written directly to the charities. You must bring a blank check to the meetings.
Do I have to do any additional volunteer work or fundraising to be a member of this group?
Nope. Your obligation as a member is to attend four one-hour meetings per year and write a $100 check at each meeting.
What if I cannot attend a meeting?
If a member cannot attend a meeting, she can do one of two things. She can send a blank, signed check with a trusted friend to the meeting (preferred) and the friend will write the name of the charity that is chosen on the check and give to the organizers that evening. Or, the member can make arrangements to mail the check, made out to the chosen charity, within one week after the meeting to one of the organizers.
Where do I send my check if I missed the meeting?
You can send your check to:
P.O. Box 1098, Wildomar, CA 92595
Your Check needs to be made out to the Winning Charity
Which organizations are allowed to be submitted?
In order to be considered at a meeting, the organization must be based in the Greater Temecula Valley area. The organization must be a non-profit entity recognized as a 501(c) (3) and must have been previously established (no start-ups). We also prefer that the organization doesn't use any of their proceeds toward administrative fees, utilities, payroll, or rent. This would definitely discourage members from voting for them over someone who would not use the proceeds for those purposes. Donations benefiting national charities will not be considered, unless there is a local group affiliation and the donation will only benefit the greater Temecula Valley area. If there is an urgent community emergency at the time of the meeting, it may be presented as one of the choices upon pre-approval from chapter leadership.
I want to help but I don't have $400 a year to commit. Can I give less?
The short answer is no, but we do have an option to give the $400 per year as a team of two. How you divide the payments is up to the team members but it must still equal $400. (e.g. $50 per meeting 4x per year or $100 per meeting 2x a year by each member.
