100+ Women Who Care of Will County is designed to make an immediate and positive impact on the lives of our neighbors. We are women who support our communities by contributing to local charities together as a group. It's a unique way to multiply the impact of big hearts.
What We Do
At each of the quarterly meetings members nominate charities, three are chosen at random, and after a brief presentation, the members vote on which charity to support. Once the winning charity is announced, everyone writes a $100 check, on the spot directly to that charity. (Teams of 2 or 4 are welcome to join and share in the giving.)
That’s it! No event planning, no committees, no raffle prize solicitation, no telemarketing, no volunteering – just a group of charity-minded women working together to give back to our own community. We give 100% to the charity. (All charities nominated must be located in, and serve, Will County and must have 501(c)(3) non-profit status.)
Our Latest Donation to Bags of Hope
On October 25, 2023 members of 100+ Women Who Care of Will County had their “big check”
presentation donating $6,900 to Bags of Hope. Bags of Hope Board of Directors were presented the checks by members of 100+ WWC of Will County. Bags of Hope is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to ensuring students do not go hungry outside of school. Each week a backpack filled with food is sent home with students from area schools in Lockport, Joliet and Plainfield.
