Membership Comittments

  • Each Gals That Give member (or group) commits to donating $100 per quarterly meeting ($400 total donation each year).
  • Member meetings are conducted in one hour or less each quarter (4 hours per year) at a local establishment.
  • Any member (or group donating $100) who has signed a Membership Commitment Form and who is current with their donations may submit a Charity Nomination Form to nominate a local organization for consideration at the next meeting.
  • At each quarterly meeting, members of three randomly selected organizations will make a five minute presentation about their nominated charity or organization to the group.
  • Each member will then vote for one of the three organizations to be the recipient of that meeting's group donations.
  • At the end of each meeting, three Gals That Give member names will be drawn and these three selected members will then nominate the next three charities to present at our next meeting. Everyone will eventually get a chance to nominate a charity of choice.
  • After votes are tallied, the selected charity/organization will receive a Gals That Give group donation of up to $10,000! The cheque will be presented the following week.
  • Organizations under consideration must serve the community of Barrie or surrounding areas and provide individual tax receipts to contributing members.
  • Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless.
  • Members who are unable to attend a meeting are expected to still pay their membership fee.
  • Members who are unable to attend a meeting are freighting their vote. No proxy votes are offered.
  • 30 days minimum is required for membership cancellations.
  • An organization not selected at one meeting may be submitted again at a subsequent meeting.
  • A successful organization is not eligible for future consideration for 1 year, but the nominating member may submit the name of another organization.
  • Ties will be decided by further votes. If a tie persists, the membership will vote to either (1) randomly select one of the tied organizations by draw, or (2) divide the group donation equally between the tied organizations.
  • The selected organization must agree not to give out member information to any third parties (except for tax purposes).
