100+ Women who care
100 Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan as a simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. At their first one-hour meeting, the group of over 100 women each wrote a check for $100 directly to The Center For Family Health, their chosen local charity, raising $12,800 to buy 300 new baby cribs. Since then, chapters have formed all over the country.
OUR north Shore CHAPTER
Our local chapter was formed by Laurie Cigan, Carrie Steinbach and Kelly Stell. The motivation was the opportunity to significantly impact the lives of those in need in the community. The simple idea that when people join together they can do more as a group than they can by themselves.
In one hour we have the opportunity, as a group of 100 women, to raise $10,000 for a local charity.
- We get together four times a year to nominate worthy local charities
- Any member of the group can nominate a local charity
- Three nominations are randomly chosen, and after a short presentation by the nominating member, the group votes on which charity to support
- Each member writes a $100 tax-deductible check on the spot to the winning charity
If you have the ability to spend 4 hours a year, to raise $40,000, please join us and be a part of making a difference in our community.
