100 First Responders who care
are committed to helping First Responders but are stretched for time
want to be a member of a group making an immediate, direct & positive effect on the lives of other First Responders
want 100% of your donations to go directly to supporting First Responders or organizations which directly support them
want to learn more about the priorities and many worthy projects of our First Responders, and the organizations that serve them
Together, we will:
Meet for 1 hour
Listen to 3, five-minute presentations including description of how funds will be spent
Cast our individual votes, leading to a joint decision and as a result the department, service, or organization will be identified as the recipient of a $9,000 donation
Each write a $90 cheque to the selected organization and receive a tax-deductible receipt
Each provide a $10 donation to Invisible Wounds in support of annual conferences, 3 annual meetings for 100+FirstRespondersWhoCare, seminars and training opportunities
Do that 3 times a year, with meetings hosted in different locations in the province of Ontario. You will witness how $30,000 through your support improves the lives of our First Responders
This group will form only if there is sufficient interest, IE: when a membership number at minimum of 100 persons is reached. Attempts will be made to host a casual social event prior to each meeting be that a dinner, play a round of golf, and so on (attendance optional). Meetings will not be held between November and April, and limited to one during the summer.

The Nomination Process
In order to be considered for making a presentation at a meeting, the First Responder or individual representing a department, service, or organization must first be a member of 100+FirstRespondersWhoCare. There is no limit on the number of members from any one department, service or organization.
The nominee must declare if funds will be donated to or through a not-for-profit or charitable organization eligible to provide charitable tax receipts for donations.
No international charities, programs or organizations will be considered at this time as the current focus is on contributing to Canadian First Responders.
Any department, service or organization that is selected by the group for a donation may not be considered again for three years.
A department, service or organization is selected after a member, who has signed the Commitment Form, puts the name into a hat for a random drawing at the meeting.
$90 from your $100 commitment goes directly to the charitable organization and tax receipts will be issued by said charitable organization. $10 goes towards supporting Invisible Wounds, a non-profit organization, but is unable to issue charitable tax receipts at this time.
The meeting coordinators will collect the names of the organizations from the members as they arrive. At random, three organizations will be selected from the hat. The nominating members will be asked to come up and give a short five-minute presentation as to why the organization they are nominating should receive the donation and allow five minutes for questions. The group will then vote on their preferred choice. We encourage members to participate by submitting the needs and wants of your service, department or organization! Too often First Responders strive to take care of others… this is your opportunity to care of yourselves!
I understand and agree with the following statement:
I understand that I am making a commitment to 100+FirstRespondersWhoCare to make an annual donation of $300 ($100 at each of our three meetings) with $90 donated directly to the Department, Service, Organization chosen after presentations to the group, and a $10 donation to support continuation of annual Invisible Wounds conferences, seminars and/or training opportunities.
I agree to fulfill my donation commitment even if I did not vote for the presentation selected by the majority vote.
I agree I will provide my cheque to another member to deliver in my absence at any meeting.
I agree to have my contact information included in the 100+FirstResponderswhocare Membership Directory *
