100+ Men Who Care St. Louis
Through the power of numbers, we combine our donations to make an immediate, BIG impact on our local community while having some fun! In doing so, we will create a culture of giving and support. We will have a bigger impact if we stick together.
Once every quarter, individuals arrive to the event and write a check for $100. Upon admission, individuals grab a beer, some food, and chat with others. We then nominate local charities to donate all of our contributions to. Finally, we vote to choose a recipient and honor their award the following week.
100+ Men Who Care is so much more than just one event. Our community needs us to come together quarterly to help contribute to great causes. That is why we are looking for men who we can count on to come back every quarter. Plus, nothing beats hanging out with good people.
How It Works
Each member must commit to donating $100 per meeting ($400 per year). The donations will be given to a charity/non-profit/worthy cause serving the St. Louis, MO area. No national charities will be considered. The purpose of the contribution is to stay 100% in the community.
Meetings will be 90 minutes: 45 minutes social/45 minutes business. From 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. any member wanting to present can submit their name and charity for the drawing. Three names will then be drawn and the members that are chosen will be given 2-4 minutes to make a presentation for their charity, followed by 2-4 minutes of Q&A. Periodically, the board may present a 4th option to be voted on.
After all the presentations have been made, each member will receive a ballot. The ballots are collected and tabulated with the “winner” receiving all the money donated that evening. Majority rules. Although the winner may not be your first choice, you will still be obligated to pay. Attendees write a check that night payable to this organization; checks are collected and presented to the member representing the charity.
A few facts about 100+ Who Care
The 100 Who Care Alliance was started as a volunteer effort by four chapter heads that wanted to create a format for sharing ideas and learning from the best practices of other chapters. As chapter heads, we all have to address similar issues and challenges within our groups. We recognized that since we are in such diverse geographical locations, most of us can’t meet other chapter heads face to face and often, we don’t even know about each other. Towards that end, the Alliance was created to connect us, the Chapter Leaders.
