What Is The Nomination And Selection Process for Charities?

Each attending voting/giving unit attending the meeting may nominate the non-profit serving Lorain County of their choice, as long as that organization meets the presentation criteria.

Three non-profit organizations will be chosen from those nominated by the attending voting/giving units for presentation at the meeting.

The members of the voting/giving unit who submitted the non-profit organization that is under consideration will be given 3-5 minutes to make a presentation at the meeting. A short Q and A will follow each presentation.

If a non-profit organization is not the one selected, said organization can be resubmitted at another meeting.
