Next 100+ Women Meeting Sept 18, 2017

Hello beautiful women who care!

After a hiatus, 100 Women Who Care is relaunching on the Sunshine Coast.  

100+ Women Who Care is a group of dedicated women who leverage their giving dollars to support various non-profits on the Sunshine Coast in a significant way.  This is a way for us to make a BIG impact in a minimal amount of time and effort. 

How it Works:

  • Each woman commits to meeting four times a year.
  • Commits to give $400 per year ($100/meeting) to a charity voted on by the group.
  • Sends a cheque signed and to be filled in with the charity selected if they cannot attend a meeting.
  • Each donor is given a charitable tax receipt by the selected charity before the end of the year.
  • Charities considered need to have been in operation as a Registered Charity for at least 12 months.
  • 3 Charities/meeting are selected to send a spokesperson to speak to our group.
  • Selected from a list of over 300 charities we have from the Volunteer Centre - random in a hat select.
  • We all vote on the charity we like the most and the one with the most votes is the one we all give to.

How We Gave 2016:

  • $3,400 to Mentoring in Violence 
  • $3,200 to Bellies & Babies

We will post on our website an update report from each recipient group on how the monies were spent.

How Our Meetings Work:

  • Meet at Blue Ocean Golf Club - 6177 Ripple Way, Sechelt - great food, good view and central
  • 5:30-6pm – sign in and order dinner
  • 6-7pm - listen to three invited speakers and vote on your favorite, write out your cheques
  • 7:00-7:30pm - hand in your cheques

We encourage you to come on time and order a meal. (so we can keep this meeting place for free). There are two salad menu options @$12.  RSVP your attendance.

We commit to keeping the meetings moving along so we have fun and accomplish our goals.

Yes! I'd like to become a member and commit to raising up to $40,000 per year!

Welcome to 100+ Women Who Care Sunshine Coast

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY

The Sunshine Coast has long been known as a community that cares tremendously about our diverse and inclusive community. There are over X charitable organizations and not-for-profits for the Sunshine Coast area covering Port Mellon to Earl's Cove. 

These organizations receive contributions from both private and public sources, and many Sunshine Coasters collectively donate thousands of hours every year to assisting these groups to meet their mandates.

But there are also many people, specifically women for our purposes with 100+ WWC, who manage multiple roles between work, business ownership, homemaking, childrearing and feel we don't have adequate or predictable time to donate in a meaningful and useful way. Or we're making individual small donations on a piecemeal basis, not knowing where the money goes, if it's effective and helpful, or creates more administrative work than it garners in exchange.

We yearn to make a direct and immediate impact, and are willing to commit to providing a $100 cheque four times a year and see it leveraged into $10,000+ each time and provided to one Sunshine Coast charity or NFP for a specific project or goal. We understand this kind of charitable activity has a place in our community, and is a deeply felt way of giving back if we are in the financial position to do so, where so many of our coastal community members clearly are not and will feel a significant impact as a result of our collective donations. 

I invite you to join us for our Inaugural Meeting of 100+ Women Who Care this coming January, by joining now on our members page. You'll be added to our monthly newsletter, which will include an invitation to nominate eligible organizations, and you'll learn firsthand what this incredible movement - made up of committed women just like you - are doing for their communities around the world.
