Join 100 Women, meeting Nov. 1

Greencastle, Indiana: 100 Women Who Care of Putnam County makes quarterly donations to a selected Putnam County non-profit organization. Organizations interested in funding must have a member of 100 Women Who Care be willing to speak on behalf of it to be considered for funding.

100 Women Who Care of Putnam County is a group of women who share a common desire to give back to the local community. Many of us can make a small donation to an organization, but in coming together as an organization, we collectively make a substantial donation to an organization.

At each meeting, members have an opportunity to make a pitch about an organization they care about. After three pitches are made, members vote for a winner who then receives $100 from each registered member. For membership of 100 women, that means $10,000 given in one evening, and $40,000 total over the course of the year given to four Putnam County non-profits.

All women are welcome to join, which means a $500 contribution over the course of a year - $100 at each of four meetings, and $100 to an endowment fund for the 100 Women Who Care of Putnam County organization to use to address future needs of our community.

All women are invited to attend the next meeting taking place on Nov. 1, 2017 at The Inn at DePauw. Registration and networking will begin at 5:00 p.m. with the business meeting scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. An appetizer buffet and cash bar will be available for enjoyment.

Women joining this meeting will be able to apply their registration fee of $100 to this meeting and all four meetings of 2018.

Organizations previously funded by 100 Women Who Care of Putnam County include Beyond Homeless, Gobin Summer Enrichment Program, Putnam County Humane Society, Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry, A-Kinetic Change, PCCS Special Olympics, Transformers, Area 30 Culinary Arts Program, Cloverdale Community School Marching Band, Mental Health America, The CASTLE, St. Andrew’s Non- Food Pantry, the Putnam County Public Library PALS Program, and the Greencastle Civic League.
