The first meeting of 100 Women Who Care Salt Lake City, June 3, 2015
We are a group of women who are interested in supporting our local community in the greater Salt Lake area. We come from all walks of life and varying financial backgrounds. As individuals it is challenging to make a meaningful impact in our community, but as a group we have the ability to contribute to the growth of our community in ways that we never thought possible!
Our mission is to reach out and help our community with 100 or more women pledging to each contribute $100 on a quarterly basis to local charities. All charities and organizations up for consideration must serve the residents of Salt Lake County, be a non-profit 501(c)3 and non-controversial. The goal is to keep it local and have an impact that WE can SEE in our communities!
This group is perfect for you if:
While checks are always welcome, digital donations are simple, fast and safe. You can even set up a recurring payment for quarterly chapter donations which allows us to direct Impact Awards to the chosen nonprofit in a more timely fashion. To cover the additional fees charged for credit card transactions and use of the platform, please make your donation for $104.
Any member has the opportunity to drop her name in the bag at each meeting with the hopes of being one of three drawn to present her charity. Each of the three members has five minutes to convince us her charity is the one to receive our donation. We listen, we vote, we each write a personal check for $100 to the charity receiving the most votes. The hidden advantage to our organization is the charity receives this donation without spending a minute of their time or a nickel of their money fundraising.
