The 100+ People for Perry charity group will hold its 10th meeting Monday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. at La Poste, 1219 Warford St. in Perry. The business meeting will be preceded by a 30-minute social hour at 6:30 p.m.
Since its founding, the group has contributed $66,000 to 10 local projects.
“Please extend invitations to other community members to attend, and also please seek projects to be presented,” said Tom Lipovac, a founder of the charitable group. “Forward any projects that you wish to present.”
The mission of 100+ People for Perry is “to invest in Perry’s future through supporting current charities/non-profits/worthy projects which advance the quality of life,” according to the group’s press release.
Their goal “is to make four large donations each year, which will impact our community. Each contribution is to stay 100 percent in the community. No national charities will be considered. ”
In order to qualify for funding from 100+ People for Perry, a “charity/non-profit/worthy cause must be a 501 (c)(3) or sponsored by a 501 (c)(3), be project based and benefit the Perry community.”
