One Charity

At each quarterly meeting, we choose one local non-profit organization to support, and we write our individual tax-deductible checks to the organization to make one aggregate and significant donation.

Purely Local Benefits

The more than 100 women (and two men) who are part of our organization are committed to supporting non-profit organizations that provide services to the citizens of the Lorain County area. Each non-profit that is presented for consideration is required to serve Lorain County. This supports our mission to make a significant impact in the community through making a larger donation than any one individual could make.
One Hour

Participating in the quarterly meetings requires about an hour of our time. Meetings begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. There is an optional social networking session immediately following the meeting to get to know other members. We meet at Quaker Steak and Lube in Sheffield, Ohio.

100 Women Who Care About Lorain County
One Large Sum of Money  

Currently, there are 180 members in our organization. With at least 100 women or groups of women giving their quarterly $100 donations, we are able to give $10,000 or more at one time, making a larger impact on the chosen non-profit organization and on our community. ​​Since 2010, we have donated over $335,000.

Congratulations to our members, and thank you for your contributions in support of the non-profit organizations who serve Lorain County!

Non-Profit Organizations that have received our donations

Good News!

Our 100 Women Fund at the Community Foundation is over $14,000, meaning it will generate sufficient interest for a payout next year! If you still want to donate, it's never too late! We encourage members to continue to donate, as they are able, so the fund continues to grow, resulting in increased ongoing community benefit. Go to the Community Foundation website ( and click on the blue donate button at the top right of the home page.   

Dear 100 Women members,

We hope everyone is well and enjoying this Memorial Day weekend! Earlier today at the Indy 500 we heard the announcer say those famous words, "Drivers, start your engines!" Today we am delighted to say, "100 Women, mark your calendars!"

The next IN-PERSON meeting of 100 Women Who Care About Lorain County will be Wednesday, July 14, 2021, starting at 6:30 pm at the Sheffield Village Quaker Steak and Lube. We will meet in the "side garage" per routine, and hopefully we will have nice weather to allow the doors to be open to the outside!

We have been in contact with Quaker Steak and they are excited and ready to have us back. With the decreasing infection rate, the increasing vaccination rate and the lifting of the pandemic restrictions, we are ready to get back to business supporting our awesome Lorain County non-profits.

For returning members, we are so ready to see everyone! For new members, welcome and introduce yourself at the membership/registration table when you come.  

A few remarks for all:
1. Please reply to this email to let me know if you plan to attend. For this first meeting since the pandemic, Quaker Steak would like to know the estimated attendance for planning purposes.  
2. In a month when the next meeting announcement comes, we will communicate any attendance requirements that might be in place (via guidance from the state of Ohio or Quaker Steak). This would include masks and/or masks for non-vaccinated individuals. WIth that said, anyone who wishes to wear a mask is certainly welcome to do so.
3. We have heard from several of you regarding new teams and new emails. Feel free to forward this information on to your team members, friends and potential new members. We want to make sure everyone has received this message. They can reply to our email:

Be safe, be well, and we will see you in July!
