Charity Guidelines


  • The donations will be given to South Florida charities/non-profits/worthy causes serving the local South Florida community. 
  • Controversial charities/non-profits will be avoided and only official charities/worthy causes will be considered.
  • No national charities will be considered.  The purpose of the group is to keep the contributions within our community.
  • The charity will have to agree NOT to use the member names for future solicitations or release the information to the public, unless an individual member has given permission to do so.  If the charity does not adhere to this condition they will be removed from any future consideration.

100+ Women who care is for you if :


  • You don't like lengthy committee meetings.
  • You want 100% of your donations to go directly to local charities.
  • You want to be part of a powerful group of women who care.


MATCHING GRANT


  • We have been selected by the Richard Schulze Family Foundation to receive a 2 for 1 match on every donation made by a new member!!! 
  •  CHARITY GUIDELINES to receive a matching donation:
    1. A Charity Fact sheet must be submitted two weeks in advance of the chapter meeting for review by the foundation.
    2. Please see the website www.schulzefamilyfoundation.org for more information about the foundation. The matching grant is available to those charities that meet the objectives of the foundation but the foundation reserves the right not to fund a particular charity. However, if a charity is not approved by the foundation, members are not precluded from sponsoring it for the regular, un-matched donation.

On April 15, 2014, Karen Dunigan, founder of 100 WWC, lost a two month battle with cancer. A former mayor of Jackson, MI, Karen passionately served her community in many roles including politics, arts & culture, business and charity.

Meetings


  • Each chapter meets four times per year; visit chapter pages for meeting dates.
  • Meeting attendance is not mandatory but appreciated. 
  • Meetings are typically from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM  with a ½ hour for mingling/networking and an hour for meeting/presentations.
  • Members nominate charities to be considered for donation.
  • Three charities are randomly chosen from the pool of nominees at each meeting to be presented to the group. Each nominating member gives a 5-minute presentation about their charity.
  • If a proposed charity is not selected during a meeting, it will be put back into the drawing for the next meeting.  If a charity has been presented three times in one calendar year but not chosen for donation by the group, that charity will not be considered until the following year. 
  • No representative of the charity may make the presentation, unless that representative is also a member.  However, we encourage a representative of the selected charity to speak at a future meeting to let our group know how the contribution was utilized.
  • The group will vote by ballot and majority rules.  Even if you don’t care for the charity selected you are still committed to donate.
  • If you are unable to attend, please donate online, give your check to a member to deliver on your behalf or mail your check to the designated person for your chapter.
  • Each member donates $100 per meeting ($400 per year) via check or $103 and $412 via online donation.
