One of the unique features that NAPW offers is that each and every member, thru her membership, automatically becomes a powerful contributor, impacting her community and making it better!
Twice a year, NAPW reviews memberships and renewals that occurred in the previous six months, and generously sets aside a total of 25% of the monies generated. Of the 25%, half (or 12.5%) is donated to the nonprofit that the members voted on to be that previous six months’ recipient of our semi-annual donation. The other half (12.5%) is given as a gift certificate to the member who recruited the most new members during that same time period. The top winner may choose up to two other members’ businesses, and NAPW will make the gift certificate payable to the business member(s) of their choice. We believe in sponsoring and investing in our ladies, and creating synergistic energy throughout our organization.
This semi-annual practice of donation and recognition encourages our spirit of growth as well as encouraging development of strong referral relationships within the group.
Here are some Nonprofit organizations we have donated money to:
- Alzheimer’s Association
- Boys & Girls Club of Rohnert Park
- The Children’s Village – Sonoma County
- Circle of Sisters
- Community Action Partnerships
