• Eligible Charities – To be considered, a charity must be nominated by a member of 100 Women of the Adirondack Foothills. Organizations from Fulton, Montgomery, & Schoharie counties are eligible. The charity must be non-profit and have 501(c)(3) tax-deductible status. No political, religious or national organizations may be nominated.
  • The Nomination Form is found HERE, and at the bottom of this page. Please complete this form and email it to or mail it to PO Box 1, Johnstown, NY 12095. NOMINATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED TWO WEEKS BEFORE EACH MEETING DATE!
  • At each meeting charitable non-profit organizations are nominated by you, the members, and their names are grouped with all other nominees. Three nominated organizations are then drawn and the nominating member has 5 minutes to tell why her organization should be selected. This will be followed by a 5 minute Q & A session for each nominee. A vote is taken, ballots counted and plurality rules! The nomination and voting process is reserved for members only.
  • The selected non-profit will be presented with the collection of checks from members as soon as they are all received. We will do our best to coordinate a presentation photo opportunity with agency representatives.
  • Non-profit charities that receive an award from 100 Women Who Care, Adirondacks, may not be nominated again for the following two years. Charities that are NOT chosen may be re-nominated as many times as the member wishes. If you decide to make a subsequent nomination of a charity, please be sure to contact us at In most instances, it is not required to complete the nomination form again.
