100 (+) Women Who Care - Central PA brings together on a quarterly basis a group committed to expanding our resources to support and benefit our communities. We come from all walks of life and a variety of financial backgrounds. As individuals, we feel both the pressure and opportunity to have meaningful impact - and are choosing to collaboratively contribute to local charitable organizations and efforts. Our mission is to invite 100+ women to contribute $100 four times a year, generating $40,000+ annually, in support of local charitable organizations.
We are organized around the following expectations:
100% of our donations go directly to local charitable organizations in Central PA - including Centre County and the counties surrounding it.
We seek to learn- and let others know about the amazing work that many of our local non-profits have underway.
Together, we are creating a powerful group of women who will have an immediate, direct, and positive impact on our communities.
We will seek to support local initiatives as opposed to national and international charities.
At each quarterly meeting, members can fill out a "Charitable Organization Fact Sheet" for a specific local organization. Three organizations will be randomly drawn from the hat during the meeting - and the members who nominated that particular organization will be given 5 minutes to present why the organization they nominated should be chosen. The members will each vote by ballot and the majority rules. Regardless of outcome, all members are responsible for writing a check for the majority elected organization.
Meetings are intentionally short - lasting from 45 to 60 minutes. As always, you are welcome to stay after the meeting to enjoy and get to know other members.
