How will winners be selected?
Egan has established a committee to review applicants and select winners. The committee will use the following criteria when reviewing applications: (a) the organization’s impact on the West Michigan community, (b) the potential impact of a $10,000 donation, and (c) persuasiveness of the application.
What organizations are eligible for the Egan 100k Community Giveaway?
Entrants must have a current 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) tax-exemption and be a non-profit located in and/or serving the West Michigan community.
I work for Egan. Can my favorite charity apply?
Yes! Egan is encouraging employees to tell their favorite organizations about the giveaway. The employee may be asked to participate in the presentation of prize money to the organization, if selected.
I don’t know anyone who works at Egan. Can my organization still apply?
Yes! An employee referral is not a requirement to apply. If an organization is selected that has ties to an Egan employee, we may ask that individual to participate in awarding the organization with its prize money.
When will winners be announced?
Beginning in February, Egan will contact the winner on or about the 10th day of each month. Egan will announce the winners to the general public on or about the 20th day of each month.
Where can I find a list of winners?
Egan will post winning organizations on www.Egan100.com, as well as our social media channels.
Are there any requirements for the organizations that are selected?
Organizations that are selected agree to allow the use of their name and/or logo in any marketing or promotions related to the Egan $100k Community Giveaway. Egan will ask the organization to make reasonable arrangements for a formal presentation of a $10,000 check, and marketing staff from Egan will document that presentation in photo and/or video for use in continued promotion of the giveaway. Following the distribution of prize money, Egan may request follow up information regarding how the organization used that prize money, including any quantifiable information on community impact, photos or images.
