100 Men Who Give A Damn! - Kelowna is a group of men who want to give back to their community but have limited time. We are not a charity, we're a fundraising non-organization, that facilitates the giving process.
100+ men are asked to give $100 directly to one of three nominated charities, four times per year. Each quarter members attend a one-hour meeting at which three charities present their causes for 5 minutes each. At the end of the brief presentations, members vote to determine by majority which charity will be the recipient of the $10,000+.
We're are a non-organization. We are not registered; we have no directors, officers or treasurer; we have no bank account because we don't collect, spend or donate anything - it’s our members who make the donations. The group and its events are run on a budget of zero by a core team of big-hearted volunteers and with the assistance of some very generous sponsors, who coincidentally also give a damn.
