100 women - 1 hour - $10K - Impact

100+ Women Who Care is a group of women who care deeply about the Santa Cruz community. The group gathers four times a year for a one-hour meeting, and each member writes 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 mission and our hope is to provide for those in greatest need in Santa Cruz County. Our Santa Cruz 100+ Women Who Care giving circle has already donated more than $125,000 to local causes. 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.
