The Steering Committee will consider all nominations and contact the nominated organizations to determine eligibility. Upon acceptance the organization will be added to our potential recipients pool. This is a diverse, inclusive group of women. We ask that you keep this in mind when nominating potential recipients and look to nominate organizations with broad appeal. In general, schools, booster clubs, or religious organizations (i.e. churches, synagogues, mosques) are not eligible. However, exceptions for programs of these organizations will be considered by the Steering Committee on a case-by-case basis. All organizations must:
1. Be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. 2. Have an annual operating budget of at least $100,000. 3. Have been in operation for at least three years as of the date of nomination. 4. Spend 100% of the funding from 100+ Women Who Care Yolo County within Yolo County.
If you are unsure if the organization you wish to nominate will meet these criteria, please check the organization's website or visit http://www.guidestar.org/ to learn more.
