History of Fund
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!
