*Note: if you do not know of an existing member to nominate your charity on your behalf, please feel free to join our Facebook page and introduce yourselves. Many of our members are looking to learn about new charitable efforts and can bring forward your charity on your behalf.

If the charity fits those requirements, send us an email with:

  • the name of the charity,
  • a contact person,
  • a very brief description of why they deserve to be nominated
  • confirmation that they can issue tax receipts
  • a link (if applicable) to a website, Facebook page, etc.

The Nomination Process

  • All eligible charities will be put into a random draw and three will be chosen two weeks prior to each meeting so that they can prepare their presentations.
    • When required, weightings are provided towards new charities (i.e. new charities are put in the draw for the first two spots, then all other charities included in draw for third spot).
  • Members will not be notified ahead of time which charities will be presenting.
    • However, charities are encouraged to promote the meeting with their own followers in order to encourage meeting participation.
  • At each meeting, charities will be given up to 7 minutes for their presentation.
  • After a secret ballot vote, successful charities will be notified immediately.

Meeting Presentations

  • At each meeting, charities will be given up to 7 minutes for their presentation.
  • We welcome all manners of presentations. Please note that if you have A/V requirements (projectors, laptops, etc) please consult with the venue for that night on their ability to accommodate those needs.
    • Keep in mind the variables that come with A/V requirements (particpant sight lines at the venue, audio quality, file / operating system compatibility, etc). If it is not required, consider not relying on A/V equipment for your presentation.
  • Similarly, any required handouts and/or info packages will be left up to the presenting charities.

Tips for Presenters

  • Charities should strive to answer the following questions:

    • what is it that you do?
    • where will the money go?
    • how does your work impact Airdrie
    • what will the money mean to your charity in the short-term? Long-term?
  • Keep the presentations short and to the point

  • Be as authentic as possible!

  • Charities are expected to help with the promotion of meetings on their social media and communication with their members.

Current Charities

We have decided to include all nominated charities into each draw every month. (Previously, charities needed to be re-nominated).

Below is a list of charities currently being considered - unless they have recently won or presented. Included is their website if you wish to connect with them outside of 100 Men.
