Frequently AskeD Questions
1. How do I become a member?
If you would like to become a member, please click “Join” and add your preferred contribution amount to your cart. Membership in 100 Women Strong OHIO includes voting at two giving events and attendance at a third tangible giving event. We're happy you found us ... and welcome!
2. What is a Giving Event?
Giving Events are held twice per calendar year. Members have an opportunity to socialize and meet the three selected grant finalists during the first hour of the event. The second hour is a gathering of members and guests to hear presentations by the finalists. Members then vote and the large grant recipient is announced. The meeting lasts no longer than one hour.
3. Is membership limited to 100 people?
Absolutely not! The more women, the greater the impact. Invite your friends!
4. May I bring a friend to a Giving Event?
Yes, please! However, in order to cast a vote, she will be required to become an official member. Being a member means making a commitment to contributing annually. Any woman is welcome to attend an event to learn more!
5. Where does my membership money go?
100% of your annual contribution goes into our grant-giving fund. During each giving event, three organizations give a brief presentation explaining why they should be selected to receive a portion of this fund. Voting by members determines the large grant recipient with the remaining two organizations receiving smaller grants of equal value. Whatever membership money is not awarded to the selected charity remains in the fund and contributes to long-term growth.
