Eligibility and Selection

100 Women Who Care Antigonish strives to represent the people of Antigonish Town & County but ultimately it is the decision of our individual members as to who they nominate based on the following guidelines.

  • The non-profit organization (NPO) must have been operational in Antigonish County for at least one year.
  • Donations must benefit Antigonish County.

Selection Process:

  • Non-­profit organizations can only be nominated by a registered member in good standing.

  • Initial nominations will be made on the Member Registration Form.

  • Three‐plus-­one NPOs will be randomly selected from the pool of nominated NPOs by an objective third party.

  • The Co‐Chairs will vet the first three NPOs by investigating their eligibility.

  • The NPOs drawn will be contacted and if they wish to participate, will be provided with a Non‐Profit Organization Agreement letter.

  • The Agreement must be completed and returned to a Co-­Chair within 10 business days.

  • If one of the first three NPOs is ineligible or declines participation, the fourth NPO
    drawn will be vetted.

  • The three eligible NPOs will be announced at the meeting 3 months prior to
    their presentation.

  • Members are free to research the selected NPOs if they wish prior to the meeting where voting will be held.

  • No national or international charities, programs or NPOs will be considered; the focus is on contributing to local NPOs.

  • Of the three selected NPOs, the recipient NPO will no longer be considered eligible;
    the two unsuccessful NPOs will be returned to the selection process.
