100 People Who Care’ initiative!
Elgin St. Thomas Community Foundation launches ‘100 People Who Care’ initiative!
The answer is simple: 100 People contribute $100 each.
•The Elgin-St. Thomas Community Foundation will collect the member pledges of $100 and provide charitable donation receipts.
•Once we reach our 100 member pledges (or more!), local charities will be invited to submit brief funding proposals to the Foundation.
•A short list of charities will then be chosen to present project ideas to the ‘100 People Who Care’ at a special granting event.
•At this special granting event, each charity will have the opportunity to make a five-minute presentation to the membership to pitch what they would do with $10,000 to foster positive change in the Elgin-St. Thomas community. (similar to our IGNITE Elgin events, 5 minute presentations with 20 slides)
•At the end of the evening, the 100 People Who Care membership will vote, and the winning charity will receive $10,000 that night!
