How It Works

  • Meetings are required to be one hour or less.
  • Each member commits to donating $100 per meeting ($300 per year).
  • Each member may nominate a Lancaster County, PA area charity for consideration to be the recipient of the meeting’s funds. (Nominations are made by signing up for each meeting, via the Meetings page.)
  • All nominations must be submitted 9 days prior to the meeting date.
  • The 100MWC-Lancaster Planning Committee will randomly select 3 of the nominated charities to present at the next meeting. The organizations will be contacted and a representative from that organization will be asked to deliver a 5 minute presentation on how they would allocate the donated funds. A five minute Q&A session will take place immediately following the presentations.
  • Each Member will vote by ballot – the majority rules. Even if your choice does not win, all Members are responsible for writing a check to the winning charity.
  • Members bring a check to be written out directly to the selected charity. If a Member is unable to attend a meeting he may give his check to another Member to deliver on his behalf, mail it to us (100 Men Who Care, P.O. Box 11341, Lancaster, PA, 17605) or he may contact the Planning Committee to make other arrangements.
  • All donations will be provided to Lancaster County, PA area charities serving the Lancaster County, PA area only. Donations benefiting national charities will not be considered. Charities MUST be a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization and submit a copy of their BCO10 if they are selected.
  • The winning charity must agree not to use the names of the Members for future solicitations without permission or give the information out for any other public use or purpose.
  • A presentation will be given by the winning charity at the next meeting, to explain how the funds have been used.
  • In the case of a two-way tie, the membership will be provided with the names of the two charities and a second vote will be taken. If the second vote results in another tie, then we will randomly pick one of the two charities’ names out of a hat. In the case of a three-way tie, we will randomly pick one of the three names out of a hat.
  • If a Member has missed more than 2 payments, they will no longer be considered a Member and will be taken off our mailing list.  After a lapse in membership, an individual may rejoin the group by making a $100 donation to the charity selected at the previous meeting.
  • A non-profit that is selected to present at a meeting, but does not receive that evenings donation, is eligible to be nominated again after two meetings. The non-profit that receives the donation from the group is eligible for nomination again after two years.
