100+ Women Who Care in Chicago Southland
1 hour + $100 x 100 women = REAL IMPACT
We are a group of women who want to make a REAL IMPACT in our community. By each donating $100 to a worthy cause, four times a year, we hope to collectively donate $10,000 each time - and it only takes an hour.
It’s this simple . . .
We meet four times a year to nominate worthy local charities
Any member of the group can nominate a local charity after attending two consecutive meetings
Three nominations are randomly chosen, and after a short presentation by the nominating member, the group votes on which charity to support
Each member writes a $100 tax-deductible check on the spot to the winning charity
No volunteering, no fundraisers to plan, no silent auction donations to solicit. No way to make a greater impact in our own backyard.
Meeting location: Little Joe’s Restaurant, 20805 South La Grange Road, Frankfort, IL
Meeting time: 7:00 – 8:00 pm
Meeting dates: 2nd Tuesday of May, August, November and February
Come prepared to listen to three presentations about local charities.
If you’ve been a participating member for at least two meetings and you are interested in presenting a local charity for funding consideration, you’ll be asked to write your name and charity on a piece of paper and toss it into the lottery bowl.
If your name is chosen, you will be asked to do a five-minute presentation about the charity and/or a special project that charity is seeking to fund.
After the presentations, the membership will vote and the charity of choice will be announced.
No matter which charity is chosen, be prepared to write a check to that charity for $100. Bring your checkbook.
At the meeting following the choosing of your charity, you must secure a representative from the chosen charity to be present and speak for no more than five minutes on the impact of our gift.
