HOW DOES IT WORK?
AT EACH MEETING, THREE MEMBERS WILL BE GIVEN 5 MINUTES TO PRESENT THEIR CAUSE.
MEMBERS WILL VOTE ON TWO CHARITIES THAT WILL RECEIVE A DONATION FROM EACH MEETING
What is the GoAL?
OUR GOAL IS TO IDENTIFY 100 OR MORE MEN TO EACH DONATE AT LEAST $200 TWO TIMES A YEAR AND COLLECTIVELY GIVE $40,000+ TO LOCAL SAN DIEGO CHARITABLE CAUSES
I have a local charity that I want to present at the next meeting. What do I need to be prepared to talk about?
Presentations are simple and should not be overly formal. We do not use multi-media e.g. PowerPoint presentations, DVDs, etc. When you show up, here is a list of things that you should be prepared to talk about, at a minimum:
1. What is the name of the organization?
2. Where is the organization located?
3. What is the mission of the organization?
4. What purpose does the organization serve? Who do they serve? What do they do? How do they do it?
5. How would they benefit from receiving the donation? How will the funds be used?
6. Who is responsible for discharging of funds?
7. What are their administrative fees? What percentage of donations actually get disbursed to the charitable cause?
8. Are they a recognized 501(c)(3)? Etc.
mission & vision
Through The power of numbers, we will combine our donations to make a positive impact on our local community - and have fun doing it!
Each member must commit to donating $200 per meeting ($400 per year).
The donations will be given to San Diego regional charities/non-profits/worthy causes only.
Each member that would like to present a charitable causes for consideration will enter their name in a hat. If our guest speaker would like to present his charity, we will draw for two others to present in addition to the speaker.
Each charity/non-profit/worthy cause that is under consideration will be given five minutes to make a presentation at the meeting by a San Diego Men On A Mission member.
After the three charities/non-profits/worthy causes are presented. The group will vote for one of the two charities by ballot and majority rules. Our second charity will be the guest speaker's charity of choice. Although it may not be your first or second choice, you are still obligated to donate.
If your name is drawn and you make a presentation and your charity is not chosen, you will still be eligible to put your name in the drawing at the next meeting.
For tax purposes, all checks will be made out to the chosen organization. If you are unable to attend, give your check to a member to deliver on your behalf.
The charity/non-profit/worthy cause must agree to NOT use the donors' names for future solicitations or give the information out to the public. If the charity/non-profit/worthy cause does not adhere to this condition, they will be removed from any future consideration.
