Latest Contribution of $27,600 to Out of a Jam, Inc.

100+ Women Who Care is an exciting group of women coming together to make a difference in our local community. The group gathers four times a year for a one hour meeting, and each member writes a $100 check to a local 501(c)(3) organization that the group selects. This combined donation makes a real impact. We hope you will join us at our next meeting to see how easy and fun it is!

Gladieux Consulting

100+ Women Who Care is for you if:

  • You don’t have time in your busy life to volunteer but have been wanting to help those in need and you can commit to one hour every three months;
  • You want 100% of your donations to go directly to a local charity;
  • You are involved with other groups but are interested in meeting other women philanthropists in Ft. Wayne;
  • You want your $100 donation to become a part of a larger amount of money by joining together with other women – making a significant impact in our local community.


At a glance, this is how it works:

  1. Each member commits to donate $100 per quarter (that’s only $400 per year).
  2. At each quarterly meeting three members will be randomly selected to promote their favorite local not-for-profit agency in need of funds. Each presentation lasts no more than 6 min with 4 min of Q & A from the members.
  3. Each member votes on the agency to receive the funds and the agency with the most votes receives the quarterly donation.
  4. Each member writes a check directly to the organization (no overhead, 100% contribution).
  5. The meeting is over in one hour with a significant impact made to a local organization.
