Ladies of Washtenaw County...if you care about local community causes and are committed to making a difference, please consider joining 100+ Women Who Care Washtenaw County.
Who we are: 100+ Women Who Care Washtenaw County is an organization to support non-profit agencies. Agencies located right here in Washtenaw County and serving Washtenaw County residents. Now nearly 200 women and growing, we all agree to donate $100, twice a year, to guide our vision of nonprofit support. We’d love to have you join our group.
How we work: At our bi-annual meetings, members are encouraged to submit the names of any non-profit organization in Washtenaw County. Three organizations are selected at random. The three members who submitted the names of the organizations each have a five-minute window to tell the membership why they think the organization they recommended should receive the financial support of 100+ Women Who Care Washtenaw Washtenaw County. Once all three members have spoken, the group then votes by ballot to choose the recipient.
What we do: Members come to the meetings with their checkbooks, prepared to write a check for $100 to the selected charity. All donations are tax-deductible.
Things we’ve done: In the spring of 2018, we were able to present a donation to NAMI of Washtenaw County (National Alliance on Mental Illness) for $12,900. This was the largest one time donation they had ever received. In the fall of 2018, we presented a donation in the amount of $13,150 to Hope Dental Clinic. This was the largest donation our organization has made to date!
Goals we have: The goal of our group is to continually welcome new members so we can in turn, make a significant financial impact on area non-profit agencies. We recognize, that as women we are powerful, and as a group of women there is no stopping us. The group of women you will meet thru 100+ Women Who Care Washtenaw County are authentic in their desire to help both financially and through volunteerism.
