100+ Women Who Care Vigo County is a philanthropic women’s group, coordinated by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation. This group is designed to provide financial support for charitable causes in Vigo 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 the impact!
100+ Women Who Care is composed of women who share a common desire to give back to their local community.
Members commit to donating $515 annually. The first $100 supports an endowment in the Wabash Valley Community Foundation that will be used to serve future needs. $15 will be used to cover appetizers and service for the year at the Country Club of Terre Haute. The remaining $400 is used to support the 4 nonprofits selected by members throughout the year ($100 at each meeting). For example, if there are 100 members, each quarter the group will award a $10,000 grant to a local nonprofit organization.
To encourage younger philanthropists in our community, this group offers a reduced membership of $265 for women 40 years of age and younger. This membership requires a $65 membership fee and then $50 at each quarterly meeting, totaling $265 for the year.
