100+ Women Who Care is a group of women who gather four times a year for a one-hour meeting, learn about local charities, and each donate a $100 check to a charity that the group selects. This combined donation of $10,000 makes a real impact, without time-consuming fundraising events and planning. Our Santa Cruz 100+ Women Who Care giving circle has already donated more than $261,000 to provide for those in greatest need in Santa Cruz County. We hope you will join us at our next meeting to see how easy and fun it is!
100 Women Who Care is for you if:
- You don’t have time in your busy life to volunteer but have been wanting to help those in need, and you can commit to one hour every three months;
- You are involved with other groups but are interested in meeting other women philanthropists in Santa Cruz;
- You want 100% of your donations to go directly to a local charity;
- You want your $100 donation to become a part of a larger amount of money by joining together with other women—creating a powerful impact in our local area.
To join 100 Women Who Care Santa Cruz, just come to the meeting and bring your blank check for $100.00. Anyone who is ready to donate gets to vote for the selected charity. To nominate a charity for consideration, complete a Nomination Form and return it via mail or email at least two days before the next meeting. You must be at the meeting and be a member to put a name in the hat, vote for, or speak about the organization.
