100 Women Who Care

Burlington women can help make a change in their community with grassroots philanthropy group 100 Women Who Care. New to Burlington, each hour-long quarterly meeting asks members to make a monetary commitment of $100 and discuss which of the nominated registered charities they would like the funds to support, with those funds directly targeting services, supplies and other needs that cannot be otherwise funded. Each selected charity could receive a potential investment of $10,000 from the group. At each subsequent meeting, members will receive a report confirming that the funds provided were used exactly as approved, as well as notification of forthcoming tax receipts. The Burlington chapter of 100 Women Who Care is looking for members for its inaugural meeting at Tansley Woods Community Centre on January 29. Go online for more details or to join.
