This group is designed to provide financial support for nonprofit organizations in Clay County, Indiana while creating a sense of community. 100 Women Who Care is open to all women – the more women who are involved, the greater our impact will be!

Overview:

100 Women Who Care is a group of philanthropic women who share a common desire to give back to their local community.

Members commit to donating $500 per year of membership. The first $100 supports an endowment in the Clay County Community Foundation that will be used to serve future needs in the community. The remaining $400 is used to support the 4 nonprofits selected by members at the quarterly meetings ($100 at each meeting). For example, if there are 100 members, each quarter the group will award $10,000 to each local charitable cause.
