How it Works

Register as an individual member by completing the Membership Commitment Form and email it. Full instructions can be found at the bottom of the registration form.

As an individual member you must commit to donating $408 per year (or $102 per meeting). We meet 4 times a year in March, June, September and Dec. $2 per meeting cover administration so the charity receives $100 per member.

100 Men of Kawartha Lakes has a fund send up with Kawartha Community Foundation. All donations are paid to the Foundation, who in turn will write a single cheque to the selected charity of choice.

Members can pay online, mail their donation or at the door. If possible, please pay for the year up front.

We select from local registered charitable organizations serving the City of Kawartha lakes. Individual members can also submit a registered charity they don’t see on the list of charities City of Kawartha Lakes.

Three local charities will be randomly chosen prior to the next meeting. A representative from the nominated organization will have an opportunity to make a 5 minute presentation to the group and answer questions for 2 minutes.

After the three presentations, each individual member at the meeting, or their proxy, will vote for one of the three chosen charities. Note: You are allowed 1 vote per  member.

After all votes are tallied one charity is selected! The selected charity will receive a donation depending on the number of members. So 50 Men $5,000, 100 Men equals $10,000, 150 Men $15,000.
