How does it work?
* 100 or more women get together for about one hour;
* each woman or team of women donates $100 (or more);
* all donations go directly to one small, local organization, chosen by the membership.
This can mean $10,000 or more in one hour for one small organization,
whose members work hard to help our neighbours, but who may struggle to raise funds.

Who does 100+ Women support?
We support small, local, grassroots registered charities, foundations and not-for-profits,
which operate on a shoestring budget, and are volunteer-driven, with no or limited staff.
We are looking to donate to groups which support the most vulnerable members of our community,
groups for whom $10,000 or more will make a tremendous difference.
To be eligible, the organization must have a registration number from the federal government.
All monies must stay and be used locally.
At each meeting, attendees vote to choose the group to be supported at the next meeting.
You can nominate a group here!
Can I join? Can I attend as a guest, or bring a guest?
Yes! We invite every woman from our community to participate,
whether as a member or as a guest, as an individual or as part of a team you put together.
Each individual and team donates $100 or more.
Please join us, or RSVP for our next event!
Alone we can do so little... Together we can do so much.
