OUR PURPOSE

Our goal is to bring together 100+ awesome teens from Oakville who care about making a difference in our community.

 

100 Teens Who Care wants to inspire the next generation of philanthropists by providing a forum to help and contribute to local charities.

 

THE DETAILS:

 

• Teens commit to 4 meetings per year (1 hour per meeting)

• Teens donate $10 each meeting

• 100 kids x $10 = $1000

• $1000 to charity in 1 hour!!

• 100% of their donation is given to charity

THE CHARITIES:

 

• Charities should be Halton based

• Charities are grassroots and support children’s initiatives

• 3 charities are pre-selected before the meeting

• They speak for 1-2 minutes to give their “pitch”

• Teen members vote for the charity

• Majority rules

• The charity with the most votes will receive the group’s collective donation

HOW WE WORK

WE MEET FOUR TIMES A YEAR AND AT EACH MEETING …

 

• Each teen brings $10 that was earned by himself or herself

• We present about 3 local charities that need donations

• We vote on which charity we’d like to donate to

• 100 teens x $10 = $1000

• $1000 to a charity in 1 hour!

NOMINATE A CHARITY

Nominations for the next 100 Teens Who Care Oakville event are open now!

Here are the key dates and how it works:

 

– To nominate a charity, you must be a 100 Teens Who Care Oakville member (or plan to join at least 2 weeks before the next meeting)

– Nominations must be received 5 days in advance of the meeting

– Nominations will be randomly selected 3 days before the meeting

– The 3 nominators selected will be contacted on 3 days before the meeting and will be asked to prepare their 3-5 minute “pitch” presentation

– Nominators who are not randomly selected will also be contacted (and encouraged to nominate again!)

– The 100 Teens nominators will pitch at the 100 Teens Who Care Oakville event, and representatives from the charities will be invited to come to the event (they are there to address questions, but not involved in the pitch)

– The 100 Teens members attending the event will anonymously vote for 1 charity to receive the group’s collective donation

– Majority rules – the charity with the most votes will receive 100% of the 100 Teens Who Care Oakville donation

 

Presentation Guidelines:

The following information should be included in each 3-5 minute “pitch”:

– Charity mission statement

– Who and what the charity serves and supports

– What the donated funds would be used for

 

Helpful Presentation Tips:

– Make the presentation personal; i.e. explain why the charity is important to you and if/how you are connected to it.

– If you are using a PowerPoint presentation, it should be 3-5 slides (5 slides max.), and received 48 hours in advance.

– Please keep the presentation brief (3-5 minutes max.)

– Please invite a representative from the charity to the event.  Keep in mind that they are there to address questions, but are not actively involved in the pitch.

– Remember to look at the audience and smile!

– Have fun!
