100+ Women Who Care to meet Sept. 6 in Decorah

The September meeting of 100+ Women Who Care – Oneota Valley is planned for Wednesday, Sept. 6, at Rubaiyat in Decorah. Registration starts at 5:30 p.m., and the meeting will be from 6 to 7 p.m.

100+ Women Who Care is a unique women’s organization with the sole purpose of streamlining fundraising for area non-profits. Since April 2017, our giving circle has donated more than $130,000 to 20 unique local charities here in the Oneota Valley in just 21 hours of volunteer service.

Meeting organizers report the Schulze Family Foundation has committed to continue to provide matching grants of 50% of total dollars raised per meeting (up to a $5,000 match pending approval of the charitable organization by their Foundation) for Women Who Care Chapters in the US for 2023.

This event is open to all local community members who are looking to learn about local charitable causes and make an impact. All donations stay local and are made directly to the non-profit so 100% of your dollars are put to work in the community.

100+ Women Who Care – Oneota Valley is a group of women who gather four times per year to donate to a local nonprofit organization. When these individual gifts are combined, they are amplified and become a powerful force for doing good work in our community. After a member vote, one of the three non-profits presented are selected by the group to receive proceeds from the evening.

o’rganizers said those non-profits that have benefited to date are: Versterheim 4th Grade Immersion Program, Helping Services for Youth and Families’ Domestic Violence Program, ARC, Art Haus (received funding twice), Humane Society of NE Iowa, Celebrating Women Scholarship, Step up and reach out – suicide awareness, Toys Go Round, Nisse Preschool, Iowa Food Hub, Discovery Camps at Luther College, Winneshiek Medical Center Hospice, Thunder Rode, Winneshiek County Conservation – Freeport Park, Sunflower new building project, Project Linus Northeast Iowa, Kids Lunch Club, Decorah Community Food Pantry, Decorah Senior Citizens Hospitality Center and Mosaic of Northern Iowa.

I am interested in participating in 100 Women Who Care. I am unable to participate in person and wonder if I can send a check to someone when the charity is chosen each quarter.
