Get at least 100 women together who want to make a difference but can’t fit one more thing into their busy lives, to agree to meet for one hour four times a year and donate $100 each time.
This is the concept behind 100+ Women Who Care – Bucks County. Here’s how it works.
At each quarterly meeting, members in attendance can nominate a local charity for consideration. The charities must be a 501(c)3 and the funds must stay in Bucks County.
The names of three charities are pulled from those nominated. Each makes a five-minute presentation at the next quarterly meeting about why they deserve the funds.
The members in attendance vote and the winner takes all.
While attendance isn’t required at the meetings, you’re still on the hook for the $100 and you must agree to be a member for at least a year.
Your presence is required, however, to vote or nominate.
Currently membership stands at 180 women. That means that $18,000 is raised in one hour to help those in need in our local community.
This amazing group of women have donated funds to Nicks Clicks, NAMI, Shamrock Reins, Family Services of Bucks County, Mother Bachman Clinic, Bucks County Housing Group and many others.
They are currently on track to raise over $75,000 in 2020 – IN 4 HOURS! Imagine what they could do if there were 250 members! Five-hundred members?!
