What can happen with the power of collective giving?
When you donate $100 to a charity, you may wonder if you're making a difference. But when 100+ women donate $100 at the same time, we raise over $10,000 for a worthy cause.
A simple, yet impactful, way to give in our community.
Come join us!
All you need to do is give $100 and one hour of your time four times a year.
(Hey, are you 35 or under? Then join and give $35/1 hour/4x per year)
Since June, 2015, we have already donated over $85,000. to Greater Pittsburgh causes. Our membership continues to grow which means our impact becomes more significant! We are excited for you to join and hope to see you at our next meeting!
WHO ARE 100 WOMEN WHO CARE?
100 Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, as a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. Her group of 100 women, at their first one-hour meeting, each wrote a check for $100 directly to the charity, raising over $10,000 to buy 300 new baby cribs for an organization in their city. By 2014, the year of Karen's death, the chapter raised over $400,000. for local charities. There are now over 250 Women Who Care chapters across North America and beyond. Pittsburgh is proud to be one of them!
WHO ARE 100 WOMEN WHO CARE PITTSBURGH
Our local group was started in June, 2015 by Kim Patterson, Alice Greene, and Brandi Phillips. The concept of pooling dollars to make a big impact, they thought, was brilliant! The three women recognized how a group like 100 Women Who Care could fill in many monetary gaps that can make a significant, and at times, a dramatic difference to many organizations and the people they serve. Within the first four weeks of spreading the word, 90 women signed up to join. The first meeting, over 40 women showed up and 13 charities were nominated!
