How It Began
100+ Women Who Care began with a great idea in Jackson, Mississippi back in 2006 and it's continued to spread all over the nation.
Karen Dunigan wanted to give back to local charities in an immediate and simple fashion. She gathered together 100 women and in their first meeting they raised $10,000, by donating $100 each, to buy 300 new baby cribs for their community.
Since then the organization has branched over 100 chapters nationwide.
Our chapter in Moab, UT began in 2017. We are local women who are joined together by the affiliation of supporting our community and giving back. We are local women, just like you, who want to make an impact in our community.
It's a simple meeting. We run the evening as follows:
Active members nominate a local charity, non-profit, or worthy cause. These nomination are put into a hat.
Three nominations are selected, at random, from the hat.
A member of our 100 Women Who Care Moab organization has 5 minutes to present the cause to the membership.
Each member votes for the cause to support.
All members, present or otherwise, agree to donate $100 to the cause with the most votes that evening.
An easy and immediate way to support local needs with thousands of dollars happens every three months
All women in our greater Moab area are invited to attend the meeting and decide if it is the right organization for them!
Everyone is welcome to join 100 Women Who Care Moab—please feel free to come to a meeting before joining to find out if the group is right for you.
We do not have political affiliation, share our backgrounds or religious views, or demand a lot of time from our members.
All of the leaders and members of our 100 Women Who Care giving circle are volunteers. 100 Women Who Care does not keep any of the money that is collected. 100% of your donation goes directly to the selected charity on the night they are selected!
If you are interested in helping out at a meeting, just let one of our volunteers know when you check in and we’ll gladly accept your help in handing out name tags, passing around the hat, counting ballots, and more. It’s a fun way to get to know more of the generous women in our community.
