100+ Women Who Care members meet four times a year. Prior to the meeting, each individual member can nominate their choice of a single non-profit organization to be the recipient of the collected donations. Once all the nominations are in, three organizations are randomly selected from a hat. At the short quarterly meeting (this time via Zoom) these three organizations make their presentations. After the presentations, the members vote, and the selected non-profit is awarded the donation.
The pandemic is not stopping people from joining. In fact if anything it has helped the membership grow. Non-profits need them more than ever. “100+WWC is exactly what I have been looking for,” said a new member from Burlington, ”I have to admit, I've been a little lost since Covid-19 began as my volunteering has waned. I've been looking for ways to be involved in the community in ways that don't involve me physically being there. 100+ Women Who Care is perfect. What a great idea!”
“Our powerful team has recruited over 118 members to date ,” Keller informed. “We grew from 10 members in March 2020, to 30 members in July 2020 to 60 members in October 2020. We are thrilled to see this small but mightygroup grow and continue to grow.” Runner up charities, Green Mountain Foster Bikes and Feeding Chittenden also received significant donations from other generous 100+WWC members who were touched by their compelling presentations. The next scheduled meeting is April 28, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. To join 100+ Women Who Care or for more information visit https://www.100wwcvt.com/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
