We Are 100 Women Who Care – Greater Rochester Area
We are a group of local women who are interested in supporting our local community in Greater Rochester Area by contributing to local charities together, as a unit, to increase the impact.
We come from all walks of life and different financial backgrounds. As individuals we felt that it was difficult to make a very large impact, but as a group we have the ability to contribute to the growth of our community in ways that we never before thought possible.
We invite you to become a part of this powerful group to have a positive impact on those in need.
100 Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, MI as a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities/non-profits/worthy causes. 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 chapters are forming all over the country. She's been interviewed on CNN and other cities are forming groups.
100 Women Who Care Greater Rochester Area was launched in April 2013 by Barbara Donohoe, Linda Chayka and Amy Whipple.
The first voting meeting took place on June 5, 2013. As of June 11, 2013 the group met their initial goal of 100 members! We know this group has the capacity to grow even larger and help area charities in an even larger way. Please consider joining us and spread the word!
