The Basics

Meet

We begin the evening with a social time at 5:30 p.m. Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 7:00 p.m, and are held at COHatch, The Cardinal Room, or Ulen Country Club.

Nominate

Members & eligible 501c3 organizations can nominate a nonprofit for the opportunity to win the group’s support. When an organization is selected, the speaker has 5 minutes to present to the group why this nonprofit deserves the group’s support. Three charities will be randomly selected at each meeting.

Order

Members vote for one of the three nonprofits that presented. The nonprofit with the most votes is selected as that evening’s grant recipient.

Give

Members make an annual donation, based on their membership type, to CFBC, which will award one large grant to the winning organization. You may also choose to make your donation quarterly if preferred.

Observe the IMPACT

A check presentation will be scheduled roughly 2-3 weeks after the meeting. All members are encouraged to attend and hear directly from the selected organization how the donation will be utilized to better Boone County.
