DO YOU GIVE A DAMN?
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
100 Men Who Give a Damn is made up of at least 100 registered members who are committed to seeing their charitable efforts have a direct and immediate local impact.
Every member who registers is committed to donating $400 a year to charities voted on by our membership.
When each man registers, he nominates one not-for-profit or charity group to be in the running to receive a donation. One week before each meeting, 3 charities will be drawn at random and will be contacted to prepare a short (5 minute) presentation on the night of the meeting.
From those charities, everyone present at the meeting will then vote for a winner and $100 checks are written out and donated on the spot to the charity receiving the most votes!
100 men x $ 100 = $10,000 (or more)!
Yes, as a member you commit to making four quarterly donations of $100 to the charity chosen by the majority. You can withdraw at anytime by contacting us. But you cannot join and then simply NOT participate.
In Dallas we require a commitment at registration to attend each quarterly meeting. If you cannot attend a meeting, you will still be expected to honor your commitment by sending your check with a friend or dropping it off.
Sorry, no. Because our goal is to make one BIG donation on behalf of the whole group, the answer has to be “no”.
To make a BIG impact, we want to give $10,000+ dollars at the end of our meeting.
The BIG impact helps our winning charities get BIG attention. The only way to do that is to make each member’s donation part of the larger donation. This is the power of being a member.
We also need to be able to track your donations so that you get credit for the donation and remain in good standing. Only members in good standing can nominate, attend, and vote.
The meetings itself is from 6pm – 7pm. We encourage you to come at 5:15pm for drinks, networking and to get to know the brothers you are banding together with. We’ll have a cash bar waiting.
No, that would not be fair to the charities, would it? If we can make a BIG impact with 100 men, why not invite a friend and make an even BIGGER impact? Remember, we’re doing this for the charities and our community, not just for us.
(Please read the criteria on the “charities” page before nominating.)
Once you have nominated a charity, you may not nominate again until the next year- this includes those whose charity gets picked for donation.
Any registered not-for-profit group or charity that has existed for over 1 year, and serves Dallas and the the surrounding area is eligible for nomination.
Yes! Tax receipts will be written out by the awarded charity, NOT by 100 Men Who Give a Damn. This is what your mailing address information will be used for. Expect to receive your receipt of donation within a month of each meeting.
Yes, please do. We only ask that your friend donates a $100 check along with everyone else on the night that he attends. If your friend would like to be a member we will have registration forms available at the meeting; without being a registered and committed member though, friends are unable to vote for the charity at the meeting.
Absolutely 0% – ZERO!
100 Men Who Give a Damn East Dallas is organized and operated entirely by volunteers. Even our meeting space has been graciously donated.
100% of the money raised at our meetings goes directly to the selected organization.
