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.
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
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.
