 100 Women Who Care have done since 2014-2016 and more to come!

It’s amazing what a group can achieve when working together to make a difference!  The idea is generosity and giving back!  The method is each woman being willing to give $100 quarterly to create a $10,000 impact.  The slideshow above is a small demonstration of the impact made in Putnam County, Indiana….OUR home!  We want to extend this invitation to all women who share in the desire of helping out their community’s nonprofit family!  Whether you are a past member, present member or future member, please consider joining 100 Women Who Care to create lasting memories and a legacy of a cheerful heart!  See you on Wednesday, November 2nd at The Inn at DePauw.  Social hour is from 5pm-6pm and the meeting from 6pm-7pm!

100 Women Who Care

  100 Women Who Care Giving with Thankful Hearts!

 As we finish our 2016 mission of giving back, the members of 100 Women Who Care Putnam County are ready to learn about our community’s local nonprofit 501c3 organizations and in return supporting them with a charitable gift of potentially $10,000. It takes 100 Women to reach that $10,000 gift.   If we reach 100 or 100+ women, that’s $40,000 going back into Putnam County!

Philanthropy and passion is what drives 100 Women Who Care to thrive! It’s a time to come together, socialize, network, become educated and to simply give. In the past 3 years, we’ve learned about many nonprofits that operate in our home community! During our events, women philanthropists of Putnam County meet others that share the same passion and desires for the nonprofit community. If you are a woman looking for a simple way to help out the community, then this is the group for you! Become 1 of 100 Women Who Care! 

Here is how it works:

The members of this group meet only four times each year for a one-hour social gathering and one-hour meeting. At each meeting, each member may submit a local 501(c) (3) non-profit public charity or government entity she would like to have included in a drawing. Three members’ submissions will be drawn out to present to the group. We learn who they are, how the organization serves, what their needs may be and more. Each member drawn will have up to 5 minutes to present followed by a 3 minute question and answer period from the group. At the end of the presentations, the 100 Women Who Care members will vote, ballots are counted, and the winner is announced. The total commitment is $500, which is divided 5 ways. $100 goes to build the 100 WWC endowment managed by the Putnam County Community Foundation. Then, $100 will be given to each of the 4 chosen charities in the months of February, May, August and November.
