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 NAMI Will-Grundy
100+ Women Who Care of Will County donated $6,750 to NAMI Will-Grundy this quarter. Vice President, Cheryl Habeeb, and other NAMI volunteers were presented the checks on January 11, 2023. Our donation will help provide education, support, advocacy, and public awareness, so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives. Specifically, it will help fund the socialization activities and drop in services that are offered. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
This group is perfect for you if:
• You believe in giving back and want 100% of your donation to go directly to a local charity.
• You've been wanting to help those in need, but are not sure how to fit it into your busy schedule.
• You want to become part of creating a powerful new group of women that will make an
