Frequently asked questions
How does the executive board review the applications for grant?
The board meets as a group to review all grants received in the timeline noted on the website, under calendar. The top three organizations that make it through the board review will then be asked to make a video, no more than 2 min in length, so that we can show to our entire group of 100 men who you are and why are deserve the gift. From there they will vote and the top choice will be the recipient of the money. The winning organization will be invited to our next event to present the money to and have you say a little something to the group.
How often can an organization win and receive the gift from 100 Men of Dane County?
You can apply as many times as you wish, but we will only be able to give to each organization every 2 years due to the number of charities and child based needs in our area.
