I’m a new member, what should I expect at a Give?

Expect to be greeted by a Leadership Committee member and asked to sign-in. There will be food and drinks for sale and time for mingling with other members.

Generally, our Gives will go as follows:

5:30 pm – Check-in and mingling

6:30 pm – Give meeting begins

Opening remarks by Leadership Committee.

The charity that received the funds from the previous meeting will be invited to say a few words of thanks and tell the group how their donations were/will be used and what the impact their donations made on the organization.

An explanation of the charity selection and voting process is given.

Three (3) nominated charities will be selected at random from the hat.

The members who nominated those three (3) charities will each have five (5) minutes to present their charity to the group (no PowerPoint or collateral materials, please). A brief Q&A will follow each presenter.

Members will submit their anonymous ballot and the votes are tabulated.

The charity with the most votes is announced.

The next meeting and venue are announced.

7:30 pm – Give is adjourned. Stay and mingle more or head home.
