History of Fund
100 Women Who Care Putnam County, is a group of women who share a common desire to give back to their community. The group is open to all women — the more women who become involved, the greater our impact will be! The group is part of a national movement and modeled after similar organizations located throughout the United States and Canada. Putnam County will be the third county in Indiana to form a group. 

100 Women Who Care Putnam County allows busy women to become involved in giving back to the local community in a big way. Women members meet four times a year for a one-hour meeting. At each meeting, members may nominate a charity by submitting her own name, a speaker’s name, and the name of a local 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, church, or a government entity she would like to have included in a drawing.  At the meeting, three members’ submissions are drawn, and each will be given five minutes to provide an explanation of the organization and its services.  Five minutes will also be provided for questions if needed. At the end of the presentations, members vote, ballots are counted, and a winner is announced. The women then make out their checks or pay $100 in cash to the selected charity. One hundred members means that four worthy local non-profits will each receive $10,000 during the year! 

For a total of $500 a year, female philanthropists can have a huge impact on our community. At the same time, 100 Women Who Care will be building an endowment that will provide permanent funding to benefit our community in the future!
