The 100 Men Who Care organization is built on the crowd-sourced philanthropy fundraising model. Members nominate charities, who if picked in a random drawing, pitch their mission to the membership. The membership then votes, and the selected charity takes home the proceeds from the evening. The group’s goal is to raise at least $10,000 per quarter.
Membership is open to all men living in Central Oregon. The members agree to contribute $100 per quarter toward that quarter’s charitable donation. Eligible charities include 501(c)(3) organizations located in Central Oregon.
