Saluting the Difference Makers

Leadership Lorain County honored 100 Women Who Care About Lorain County during their annual Difference Makers Gala on Friday, February 22, 20014, at the Spitzer Conference Center. 

 “The gala honors individuals and an organization that have demonstrated remarkable leadership, while making a significant impact on the community,” said Beth Maiden, president and CEO of Leadership Lorain County.

Since its inception, the 100 Women Who Care About Lorain County have raised more than $100,000 for 12 nonprofits across Lorain County. “It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes 100 women to help that village,” Bowers said.


Community Philanthropic Award

On September 20th, 2013, our Chapter was honored by the Lorain County Urban League with a presentation of their Community Philanthropic Award.

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 $313,000.

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