WHAT WE DO

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 COASTAL GEORGIA CHAPTER

Our chapter was formed by five local women (Cathy Foley, Sandy Metzger, Susan Mundy, Melissa Stroud & Catherine Wood) who were motivated by the unique opportunity to make a significant impact on the lives of those in need in our community. The simple idea that when people join together they can do more as a group than they can by themselves. In our first year, our group has grown to 200+ Women Who Care and we donated over $80,000 to 5 local charities.

OUR APPROACH

During a one hour meeting, to be held once a quarter, we have the opportunity as a group of 200+ women to raise $20,000 for a local charity.

  • We gather four times a year to nominate worthy 501(c)3 local charities

  • Any member of the group can nominate a local Glynn County 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 and donate $400/year, please join us to make a difference in our community.
