100 HEROES – Prince George
100 HEROES IS A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS WHO WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THEIR COMMUNITY BUT HAVE LIMITED TIME. WE ARE NOT A CHARITY, WE’RE A FUNDRAISING NON-ORGANIZATION, THAT FACILITATES THE GIVING PROCESS.
100+ heroes are asked to give $100 directly to one of three nominated charities, four times per year. Each quarter members attend a one-hour meeting at which three charities present their causes for 5 minutes each. At the end of the brief presentations, members determine by majority vote, which charity will be the recipient of the $10,000+. We’re are a non-organization. We are not registered; we have no directors, officers or treasurer; we have no bank account because we don’t collect, spend or donate anything – it’s our members who make the donations. The group and its events are run on a budget of zero by a core team of big-hearted volunteers and with the assistance of some very generous sponsors, who coincidentally also care about our community.
Our roots: A simple concept. A big impact
Founded in Halifax, Canada
The 100 Men non-organization was founded in Halifax, Canada. The first
meeting was held in February 2014, by the original group of men who gave a damn.
New Chapter in Kelowna
In 2015 the Kelowna chapter of 100 Men Who Give a Damn was established. Its first meeting was held August 5, 2015, and then quarterly meetings through September 2018.
New Name–Same Mission
Recognizing that it’s not men only who give a damn, 100 Men Kelowna was renamed and rebranded to 100 Heroes Kelowna. Opening the group to everyone now provides more impact on a local charity, every quarter.
Call to action
The founding chapter has grown to over 350 members, and more than 25 new 100 Men chapters have begun to give a damn throughout North America. Now its our turn Prince George. If you are a person who cares about your community, wants to be part of a group that is committed to making a BIG impact, then we encourage you to join us!
Now it’s our turn Prince George. Come give a damn!
