The 100+ Men model is an idea borrowed from other chapters that have sprung up across the nation, as well as, 100+ Women Who Care. The organization meets four times a year at which time each man will contribute $100 to a deserving local charity. In total, each year the organization’s members will award $40,000 to four Putnam County 501c3 charities. In addition, the organization has partnered with the Putnam County Community Foundation for organizational support and the growth of endowed community funds through a contribution of $100 to the foundation at the group’s first meeting in March.
