Fondy 100 Gives brings together 100 passionate individuals to fund projects

that provide an immediate, positive impact in our community. 

 

Fondy 100 Gives was started for a couple of reasons:

  • Many of us care about making a difference in the community.  Not everyone has the financial ability to make $10,000 contributions.  However, many of us would have the ability to make four $100 contributions, annually.  If 100 people came together to pool their contributions, it would give them the opportunity to collectively make that impact in our community.  Solution – Fondy 100 Gives
  • The same businesses, individual, and foundations get asked to fund pretty much every community project.  Fondy 100 Gives is an opportunity to demonstrate that people in the community appreciate their generosity and also want to step up and start supporting community projects.  Fondy 100 Gives shows we are all here to help to make this community the best it can be!

 

Fondy 100 Gives meetings are being planned at interesting sites, some, not always accessible to the general public.  Meetings will start promptly at 5:00PM with an opportunity to purchase a beverage and socialize with other members.  Innovative and inspiring speakers will be chosen to provide a 15 minute presentation to the group.  Following the speaker, members will get to hear about three community projects presented by aspiring representatives from our local non-profit community.  Each presenter will be limited to a five minute presentation with an additional five minute allowance for member questions.  Following the live presentations, members will each be allowed to vote on the project they would most like to see funded.  Voting will take place in a “survivor-type” area where votes will be cast anonymously.  You will receive a token upon registration that you will deposit into the project “bowl” of your choice.  The project that receives the most votes will be announced immediately following the vote.  Number of votes received will not be disclosed.  The meeting will end at 6:30PM

At 100 members, each project funded will receive $7500 with $2500 added to build the Fondy 100 Gives endowment fund for future community projects.
