Of course — the more the merrier! She may attend as a guest, but if she wishes to vote for a charity, we’ll ask her to become a member by DONATING.
You can always donate more to a charity separately on your own, but for the purposes of 100 Who Care Cape Ann, we make one big donation as a group. To make a big impact we want to give $10,000+ dollars!
When a charity recipient is chosen, a donor may organize a matching donation with her organization. She should contact her organization for further details.
If a member cannot attend an event, she may donate online and submit her vote for one of the three nominated charities 24 hours prior to the next meeting to email@example.com.
Yes, a tax deduction receipt from Global Impact will be received via email immediately after a member submits her online contribution, or every quarter when their recurring payment is completed. If a check has been submitted, this receipt will be mailed to you. Global Impact is our partner which collects donations and administers the grant
We strongly prefer an online donation via credit card, but if you prefer you may write a check and mail it to: 100 Who Care Cape Ann, c/o Diane Connolly, 25 Rockholm Rd., Gloucester, MA 01930. Please leave the “Pay To” line blank; we will fill it in with the name of the winning charity

We like to call them gatherings because they are more fun than meetings! The formal part of the gathering is 1 hour, from 6:00 to 7:00pm. But there is time to socialize before and after as the event runs from 5:30 to 7:30pm, and there is a cash bar.
