To join forces with us, all we ask is that you agree to donate $100, each quarter, for a total donation of $400 annually. This is given directly to local not-for-profit organizations serving the Kingston area.
Nominate a charity
Any member may nominate a local charity. The member nominating the selected charity can either present or invite a representative from the charity to speak. Charities under consideration must serve Kingston and surrounding area and be registered under CRA. They must also agree to provide individual tax receipts and to keep member information confidential.
Each present member of KWC will consider the presentations and vote for one of the charities at the quarterly meetings. There will be no proxy voting. If a tie persists, group donation will be divided equally between the tied organizations.
Contribute $100 towards our group donation
Each member will commit $100 (Sign up via Eventbrite prior to meeting) to the charity who received the most votes. Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the charity after they've donated.
Gear up for the next meeting
A successful charity who receives our group nomination must wait a full calendar year to be nominated again; however, the nominating member may submit the name of another charity. At the following meeting, the recipient of our donation will give us an update as to where the funds were used and impacted.
