KENOSHA—The next gathering of 100+ Women Who Care Kenosha, a local volunteer organization focused on collective impact through philanthropy, will be Tuesday, November 14th 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 August 2023 meeting, Just Live, Inc., a Kenosha County nonprofit focused on raising awareness to help prevent depression and suicide, received donations of $6,740. In addition, the Robert Schultze Foundation provided a 50% match.
Since 2018, more than $190,000 has been donated to nonprofit organizations serving Kenosha County. Through the support of matching funds from the Robert Schulze Foundation, over $50,000 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, Habitat for Humanity 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, Feb. 13, 2024, at the Woman’s Club of Kenosha.
