How It Works
Join VCWWC by Making a Commitment
If you are wondering how VCWWC raises funds and selects the charity we support, our members commit to contribute $100 to the chosen charity at each quarterly meeting.
Nominate and Vote
At each quarterly meeting, pledged members can nominate a 501(c)(3) qualified charity (to verify the 501(c)(3) status https://www.guidestar.org/ ). We draw three of the members’ nominations at random, and we give the member who nominated the selected charity ten minutes to talk and answer questions from the members.
After hearing the three presenters, the members vote for the charity they would like to receive that quarter’s funding. The votes are then tallied, and the charity receiving the majority of votes is named the quarter’s recipient.
After we announce the winning charity, members act by contributing $100 to the nonprofit. We make contributions via check, cash, or payments set up through Grapevine, where members can pay with a credit or debit card or set up automatic payments.
The contributions are collected and combined with matching grants over the following 30 to 45 days. Afterward, we present the funds to the charity on behalf of the group at a scheduled check presentation and tour. We invite all members to attend and witness the event.
Members make quarterly donations, and one hundred percent of their contributions go directly to the selected charity. Since VCWWC is an all-volunteer organization, there is no paid staff, but there are operating costs, such as:
• Meeting Space Rental Fees
• Marketing Materials
• Web Hosting Costs
• Meeting Equipment Purchases
Members are, therefore, asked to donate a minimum of $20 annually to help offset the ongoing administrative cost. You can give cash or check at the quarterly meetings or write a check and mail it to:
PO Box 731994
Ormond Beach, FL, 32173
An accounting of all costs is available upon request. Contact Karen Knox, our group treasurer, at (608) 723-9074. Thank you in advance for your support and consideration.
