Nominations

Members of 100+ WWC Columbus, Mississippi, may nominate a local charity or an organization whose purpose is to benefit the public good. Nomination Forms are required to be submitted by midnight 30 days before the Impact Award Meeting. All nominations will be vetted by the KISS Committee. You can find the Organization Nomination Form here. Completed forms can be emailed to 100wwc.columbusms@gmail.com.

Voting

Approved nominations are announced and placed in The Golden Drum. An honoree spins the drum and randomly selects 3 nominations. The member who nominated the organization makes a 5-minute presentation for her nomination, followed by a short Q & A. Members vote. If you are a member and unable to attend, you may vote by completing the Proxy Ballot and sending it to the meeting with another member. All proxies must be presented at the registration table before the meeting.

The Impact Award will be presented to the organization receiving the most votes. In the event of a tie, there will be a second vote to break the tie. If a tie persists, the organization to receive the Impact Award will be drawn between the two. 100% of the funds collected will be awarded to one organization. As a member, you agree to abide by the decision of the group. With the exception of the awarded organization, all nominations return to The Golden Drum for the next Giving Circle’s Impact Award.

The second Impact Award will be given October 22, 2019.
