How It Works

In addition to making a philanthropic impact on Sunnyvale, 100 Women of Sunnyvale offers an avenue for women to meet, mix, and mingle! We know you are all busy – we see you out there in the community. The great thing about this organization is it requires a minimum time commitment. We simply come together three times a year and get business done in a single hour! Come early for social hour if you have time, but the meeting hour is when we will get down to business.

Here’s what is required for 100 Women of Sunnyvale membership:

  • Submit the online Membership Form
  • Like and follow our Facebook page and check email for information about our meeting dates and location
  • Read our Bylaws
  • Help beneficiaries apply for 100 Women of Sunnyvale funds by sponsoring beneficiary applications. (More information about the Beneficiary Application Process can be found here .)
  • Attend each one-hour meeting held in February, May and September.
  • At each meeting, hear from fellow members about three Sunnyvale charities and their specific and immediate needs.
  • Vote to select one charity and write a $100 check (or bring cash) at the meeting directly to the selected charity.

FAQ

Aside from the $100 donation per meeting, is there any additional cost to being a member?

NO, that’s it 🙂 We simply request all members donate $100 at each event, 3 times a year, to the selected charity.

What if I am unable to attend every meeting?

​Please send your $100 donation with another member who will be attending the meeting.​

What if I have a charity that I would like to nominate for consideration?

That’s great! In fact, all beneficiary applications must be sponsored by a 100 Women of Sunnyvale member. When the beneficiary application period opens, have a representative of the beneficiary submit an application and offer to be their sponsor. We encourage all of our members to actively promote our combined donation and encourage beneficiaries to apply! 

What is the term of membership?

Our membership commitment is annual. Each year, new and returning members will be asked to fill out a membership form during the enrollment period between December 1 and January 15. This will allow us to have the most accurate “combined donation” amount to present to beneficiary applicants before our first meeting in February so they can shape their request for 100 Women of Sunnyvale to fund their project or immediate need.

Am I allowed to give more than $100 per meeting?

To keep things even, we prefer to cap the donation at $100 per person. If you would like to give more, you can simply make a separate donation direct to the organization.

Am I allowed to invite guests to the meetings?​

Absolutely, guests are welcome to attend our meetings.
