100 WOMEN WHO CARE
With the restrictions in place due to COVID-19, 100 Women Who Care will not be able to meet in 2020.
100 Women Who Care is a group of women who share a common desire to give back and inspire local philanthropy in their community. Funds raised will go to support the Women’s Endowment Fund held at Brandon Area Community Foundation and supports CRA Charitable Organizations in our Westman Area.
The group is open to all women – the more women who get involved, the greater our impact will be!
For every member who joins the 100 Women Who Care initiatives they will commit by making a $100 donation to the Women’s Endowment Fund.
We are still welcoming new members. Our goal is to have 100 women registered, a $5,000 donation to be awarded at each meeting.
$5,000 impact to non-profit organizations in our community.
Annual Commitment Fee is $100 which is directed to the Women’s Endowment Fund, $50 per meeting, 4 meetings left = $200 commitment.
The group’s motto is: 100 Women – 1 Hour – $5,000 – Local Impact.
“We’re looking for women who share our common desire to give back and inspire local philanthropy in our community,” said Kempthorne. “As women, we know what its like to be stretched for time and resources but still feel the strong pull to help others in our community – and that’s why we’ve created this group.”
