Surgically injecting $10K+ into the work of local charities through funds, exposure and awareness

 

Established: 2017

Purpose:

  • Men – at least those who give a damn – agree to meet once a quarter and write a $100 cheque to a recipient charity
  • Well over $10,000 is directly injected into making Halifax stronger
  • This 100 Men Who Give a Damn! – Halifax Fund is a means to donate funds to the recipient charity prior to a quarterly meeting

About our fund:

At each quarterly meeting, three local charities – with just five persuasive minutes of mic time – go head-to-head for a chance to walk away with $10,000+. After hearing the three pitches the members of 100menHFX choose the recipient by secret ballot and write their $100 cheques to the recipient charity. It’s quick, efficient and amazing to witness.

This 100 Men Who Give a Damn! Halifax Fund is a means to donate funds to the recipient charity prior to a quarterly meeting, because we do not know the recipient before the vote (and because we are a non-organization without a bank account). The fund is a way for members (and non-members) to have their donation counted in the total presented to the recipient on the night if they are unable to attend the meeting.

One hundred per cent of funds received prior to a meeting are donated to the chosen recipient of that meeting. The date of the next quarterly meeting, joining details and charity nomination criteria can be found at www.100menHFX.ca.
