Who are 100+ Women Who Care?
100+ Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, as a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. Her group of 100 women, at their first one-hour meeting, each wrote a check for $100 directly to the charity, raising $10,000 to buy 300 new baby cribs for an organization in their city. Since then, they have grown to over 200 members and Women Who Care chapters are forming all over North America. These groups collectively have donated more than a million dollars to locally based organizations.
Wendy Moyle brought the idea home to Fort Wayne during the summer of 2013 after attending a 100+ WWC meeting in Bloomington, Indiana with her mother. “It was impressive to watch over 150 women ages 20 to 80+ come together for one hour and raise over $15,000.” Wendy gathered a dozen friends to form a steering committee and from there the membership has grown to over 130 members in the first year. The goal is to reach 200 members by the end of year 2.
