Overview

Mission Statement

100 Ways of Giving is a 501(c)(3), tax exempt non-profit organization whose mission is to give back to less fortunate, underserved communities. Our organization aims to inspire and unite young adults of color by spearheading a movement, amongst millennials, that promotes a domino effect of philanthropic and charitable acts within their own communities.

Background Statement

100 Ways of Giving began with a group of friends wanting to give back during the holidays in December of 2014.  We then transformed into a 501c3 organization who not only seeks to provide holiday cheer to those in need each year, but to provide a new face to philanthropic giving.  We found that there was scarce data representing the Black young giver and saw an opportunity to change this.  Since then, we've partnered with many non profit organizations on various 100 WOG planned initiatives, helped many individuals in need, launched our website, and brought many young people of color together in the spirit of giving.

Impact Statement

Five Accomplishments in 2016
  • 100 WOG drove 724 miles from Boston, MA to Flint, Michigan with a cargo truck filled with 100 packages of water (approx 2,400 water bottles) to distribute water to residents of Flint suffering from the water crisis.
  • 100 WOG was selected to be a part of  Power Launches Accelerator program where social impact accelerators provide social entrepreneurs, board members and philanthropists with access to leadership and organizational development training, expert mentors and a range of professional consultants and pro bono services.  11 organizations were picked out of many nonprofit applications.
  • 100 WOG partnered with Next Level Basketball and the BBW to facilitate a "Dribble" walk with over 100 attendees against violence in Boston's inner-city.  Families, kids, and volunteers walked from Mattapan to Roxbury during this walk.
  • 100 WOG received grants and sponsorships from corporations like Whole Foods, Blue Cross Blue Shield, New England Blacks in Philanthropy, and the Boston Foundation, which afforded us the ability 
  • 100 WOG in partnership with the Boston Chapter of #Hashtag Lunchbags delivered over 500  volunteer-made sandwiches to Boston's homeless population.
 
Top Three Goals for 2017
  • Raise adequate funds to implement programs in business plan
  • Host a successful holiday/relief effort for victims of the recent hurricanes
  • Continue to build volunteer membership

Needs Statement

Although we are a service orientated organization - we often find ourselves in need of the following to help run our organization:
  • Monetary donations to run programs - our organization runs mostly off of internal donations
  • Board Governance
  • Administrative support

CEO Statement

Statement from all CoFounders:

As a recently incorporated non-profit organization, run by Black young women, we knew that one of our greatest challenges would be to convince the masses that OUR organization is worthy of their energy, time, commitment and/or … dollar.

We have had several obstacles to consider as a new nonprofit, but one constant challenge we often stumble upon is how to alleviate the concerns of the wary giver. We’ve been assured by mentors and leaders in the field that loyal donors will come in due time, as the company ages out of infancy; and that each successful community service initiative, fundraising event, partnership, and/or sponsorship will build trust amongst the masses gradually. This is a struggle that we still fight, but our main concern is to always remember what we set out to do and why we are doing it.

We are millennials after all, known for going against the grain, not taking traditional routes to success, and taking full advantage of our “microwave” society. Our main goal is to bring together millennials of color, to give back to their own communities. Our mission was formed from the realization that young people who looked like us weren't asked to give back to their communities, whether it be through monetary donation or service. We work to close the loop on misconceptions of our age/race demographic, and provide fun opportunities for people to give back to those in need through various programs, events, and initiatives.


Board Chair Statement

Since our organization is still in its infancy, our original founders sit on the board.  The CEO/Executive Director statement was written by all CoFounders and will include our perspective on our organization's uniqueness, and challenges we currently face.

Programs

Serve 100

Serve 100 is a service program that incorporates various service projects, initiatives, and campaigns throughout the year. The service projects will include (but not be limited to) fun, civically engaging events/activities for millennials and young adults, service outings and partnerships with other organizations, service campaigns that address any current social issues, and fundraising events that raise money for overall operation. We plan to have at least one event per quarter each year, with our last major event (annual service day) to be held during the holiday season of each year. The program consists of a volunteer network of young adults of color that help to keep the program running and socially impactful. The Serve 100 program is considered the organization’s backbone as our young people of color engage and give back to communities that are familiar to them thus changing the look and story of who the “giver” is.

Currently our Serve 100 programs is funded mostly by internal donations from our CoFounders and sponsorships from organizations. 
Budget  5,000
Category  Philanthropy, Voluntarism & Grantmaking, General/Other Community Service

Program Short-Term Success

Program Long-Term Success 

100 Ways of Giving will increase diversity and inclusion of blacks in Philanthropy and provide underserved individuals with tools and resources that promote intergenerational mobility, while building connections between black donors and donees. Our organization will continue to execute our model in Boston, MA and gather data to determine how we scale in other cities in need, we don’t view our organization nor our efforts as siloed to one, local city. 100 Ways of Giving will tap into resources that are currently untapped, and spark a national philanthropic movement amongst millennials and young adults of color.

Program Success Monitored By  As of now, we are monitoring our success by the number of volunteers that join our network, social media presence, and feedback from partnering organization, past/present volunteers and people we have served.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

The mission of 100 Ways of Giving, Corp. is simple: to increase the engagement of young adults of color in Philanthropy, while catalyzing educational, business and personal development within our communities.

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

The positioning goal for 100 Ways of Giving is to be the best gifting nonprofit for underserved communities in need of developmental resources, and to be the volunteer organization of choice for millennials and young adults of diverse backgrounds.


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

100 WOG takes a progressive - startup for profit company approach to how we view non-profit work and how we run the business. With ever-changing digital campaigns, initiatives, and service projects we will ensure that giving and volunteering remains fun and engaging, brings millennials together, and continues to leverage ever-growing technology and social media. Through our organization’s programs, we will empower and provide opportunities for personal, social, economic and educational growth with our targeted underserved programs.

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?
