Paying Donations

HOW DO I DONATE IF I CAN’T ATTEND THE MEETING? If you can’t attend, you are still expected to make your donation to the selected charity. There are three ways to do this:

You can send a $100 signed check to our Treasurer, Jan Kazanowski in advance of the meeting, putting 100 Women Who Care in the memo line, and we will fill in the chosen charity when it is selected.

Jan Kazanowski, 7 Beechnut Drive, South Barrington, IL. 60010

You can send a $100 signed check to the meeting with another member and authorize her to write in the name of the charity that is chosen.  You must, however, be present at the meeting to submit a vote in the charity selection process.

WHY CAN’T I JUST SEND THE DONATION TO THE CHARITY MYSELF? The goal of 100 Women Who Care is to make a large, collective donation of $10,000 or more that will have an impact on our community. Individual donations that trickle into a charity will not have the same impact or enable the charity to undertake a major project based on the single, large donation.

IS MY CONTRIBUTION TAX DEDUCTIBLE? Yes. Since all of our charities must be a 501(c)(3) organization, your contribution is tax deductible. Your cancelled check for $100 is sufficient documentation of the tax-deductible donation. You may receive a thank you letter from the charity, but your canceled check is all that’s necessary for the IRS.
