100 Women Who Care Albany Nomination Form

The Nomination form must be fully prepared with the key information you need for your nomination and for answers during the member Q&A. The organization’s website and directors will be helpful resources in gathering the information requested on the form. When your organization is the recipient we will collect this form for our files.

The Nomination Process

To nominate a charity, email your name and the name of your charity to no later than the Monday night before the quarterly meeting. Any charity not submitted in advance of the meeting will not be eligible for selection that evening. We will send you an email confirmation that we have received your nomination.

Upon arrival at the meeting please check in and let us know you have arrived so we can put your name and organization into the drawing. Three names will be drawn randomly from a basket and the person whose name is on the slip of paper will be asked to present. ONLY THE PERSON WHO MADE THE NOMINATION WILL BE ALLOWED TO SPEAK (no substitutes please).

Be sure to bring the completed Nomination Form with you to the podium so that you have key information at your fingertips. Please do not bring handouts, power points or other visual aids.

Note that organizations who are awarded the donation have a waiting period of two years before they are eligible to receive the donation again.

Here are some tips on making an effective presentation if you’re selected.
