How do Charities become involved with 100WomenVan?
Are you a local charity or non-profit in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland? Do you want to know how to get involved with 100 Women Who Care Vancouver? Well you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out how WE can help YOU.

We, the members of 100 Women Who Care Vancouver, are a passionate, engaged bunch.
Charities must be nominated by a member of 100 Women Who Care Vancouver to be considered, so take the time to connect with us online. Let our members know who you are, what services you provide to our community and generally why the organization you work for is the best around. You can find us on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. The more we know about you, the more likely it is that you’ll be nominated.

Not sure if your organization meets the criteria for a nomination? We’ve got a handy list below.

In order to be eligible to present to our membership, nominated charities must meet the following criteria:

1) Must be a registered non-profit or charitable organization that’s eligible to provide a tax receipt for donations.
2) Must be established for at least one year (NO start-ups).
3) If a national or international charity, 100% of the money they would receive from us MUST go back into Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. It can be used to start a new initiative, but no funds are to be spent outside of Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. Organizations will be asked if this is possible when vetted, and if it is not, they will be removed from the nomination pool.
