Becoming a member is not a requirement of participation, but committing $400 for the whole giving cycle (or $100 per quarter) entitles you to nominate a charity to be one of the recipients of our $10,000+ gift.  A $100 donation per meeting entitles you to vote for one of the three charities presented at the meeting. We also know that your time is precious and you may not be able to attend every meeting, but your donation will ensure that we reach the $10,000 for each gift and are able to make a significant impact as a group.
