Charitable Activities

The Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club has engaged in a number of charitable acts since its inception. We are a fortunate organization with generous members and we often share that by helping others who may be less fortunate. This page is dedicated to those efforts and is organized by calendar year. To date the club has donated over $13,000 to various charities.

2015 & Beyond


Club Charitable Donation Match Program

Donations
For the 2017 club fiscal year ending 1/31/2018, the 300M Enthusiasts Club will match all member donations up to $25 per member with an aggregate maximum of $250. Members may donate any amount, specifically earmarked for charitable contributions, through the club to be held in our treasury. On JAN 31 2018, the entire pool of money along with the appropriate club match will be donated to the selected charity. All money donated through the club would need to be paid as a GIFT through PayPal (payments@300mclub.org) so no fees are paid or by check. Any donations would be tax deductible.

Charity Selection
During the 2017 club year ending 1/31/2018, members who make donations should notify the club VP & Treasurer via PM, not a post to a forum topic, of the donation amount and their first choice of a recipient. The final recipient is NOT guaranteed.
The first week in JAN, the VP will open a poll listing the top 3 charity requests from all donations made. The membership as a whole will vote for the final selection and the total of all funds will be donated to the selected charity. If there was a tie, the BOD will make the final selection.

We hope everyone embraces the program and it is successful this year.
