Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can a charity nominate itself?

No, charities may only be nominated by a member. Our members are not just interested in nominating and donating, they want to learn about local causes. They may want to volunteer, sponsor, or serve on a board or committee. They may even become regular donors or benefactors. Our members and supporters will find out about your charity in our social media discussions and posts. Get yourself known to our members, you will likely get yourself nominated.

How are the three presenting charities chosen?

  • Each member will nominate one Nanaimo registered charity. Each entry goes into a barrel.
  • We will draw three lucky charities and discuss each of them.
  • Each member votes on the one he feels is most worthy.
  • Votes are tallied, and a winning recipient charity is chosen
  • We will collect $100 from member.
  • We will make up the check photo, take a group picture, and contact the winning charity
  • We will issue tax receipts.

How much of my donation goes to the administration costs of 100 Men Nanaimo?

Absolutely zero! 100 Men Nanaimo is organized and operated entirely by volunteers. 100% of funds raised at a meeting go directly to the chosen charity! Every last penny! That said, we do charge a $50 yearly membership fee which covers the expenses of hosting our exclusive charitable events.

What do you do with my personal info?

We collect your personal information (including name, email address, phone number) strictly for the purpose of keeping in contact with our members.

We maintain two lists: a membership database and a member directory. The membership database is used by the organizers to get in touch with our members. The member directory is used by the members so that they can get in touch with each other (to give your cheque to a friend if you cannot attend a meeting for example).

100 Men Who Care Nanaimo will not sell, give, or otherwise share your personal information with any third party without your express consent, unless required to do so by law. We may occasionally recognize our members via social media and other media. If a member wants to remain anonymous, they must let us know at the time of joining.

We will never rent out, sell, or give away your personal information. Ever.

How does 100 Men Nanaimo communicate with its members?

How long do meetings last?

We're all busy! Meetings will take no more than one hour. There are opportunities to socialize both before and after the formal part of each meeting.

What if I can't make a meeting?

If a member can't attend a quarterly event, he is still expected to donate his $100 to that particular event’s recipient charity.

Is membership limited to 100 men?

No, membership is not limited to 100 men. We want to encourage as many caring and influential men as possible to join our cause to create an even bigger impact in our community.

Does every event raise $10,000 or more?

We strive to raise at least $10,000 for the recipient charity at each event, but we  cannot guarantee that the charity will receive the full $10,000. 

Although we make every effort possible to reach the goal of $10,000 or more, we do not have control over whether all of our members donate to each event.
