KENOSHA—The next gathering of 100+ Women Who Care Kenosha, a local volunteer organization focused on collective impact through philanthropy, will be Tuesday, Aug. 8th at the historic Woman’s Club of Kenosha, 6028 8th Ave., Kenosha.
Registration will begin at 5 p.m. and the program will start promptly at 5:30 p.m.
Women gather and bring a donation ($100 for women 40 and over, $50 for women aged 20-39, or $20 for women aged 13-19). The attendees then nominate local nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits must be registered 501 c (3) organizations that serve Kenosha County residents. Three charities are selected at random to present to the women in attendance. The group then votes to determine which nonprofit will receive the money raised the night of the event.
At the May 2023 meeting, the local non-profit 1Hope received donations of $6,120. In addition, the Robert Schultze Foundation provided a 50% match.
Since 2018, more than $184,000 has been donated to nonprofit organizations serving Kenosha County. Through the support of matching funds from the Robert Schulze Foundation, over $46,000 has been added to the community’s donations. Local nonprofits including God’s Kitchen, Kenosha Literacy Council, Grace Welcome Center, KAFASI, Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Alzheimer’s Association, Hospice Alliance, ELCA Outreach Center and the Kenosha County Food Bank are just a few that have benefitted from this collective impact.
100+WWC Kenosha meets quarterly. The next meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 14th at the Woman’s Club of Kenosha.
