About 100 Men

We are a community organization of men in the East Dallas area who give a damn about our city and the people in it! We work with local charities to make an impactful donation 4 times a year to different charities that make an impact in our local area.

How It Works

Once per quarter we get together and each member pledges a minimum of $100 to the organization chosen by the group. We’ll bring in 3 charities who will be nominated by the group to each event, to make a short presentation. Everyone then votes and one of the charities gets a big check!
We expect that all our members try to attend our quarterly meetings and every attendee is expected to contribute. In doing so, our quarterly donation goal is $10,000, given to the proper charity that’s an amount that can change lives and make a REAL impact in our community.
Do you give a damn about Dallas? Join us. Let’s leave the world a little better than we found it. Let’s make arealimpactin the lives of people who live and work near us!
