100 Women Who Care Guelph donated a whopping $46,600 during our first year and $55,900 during our second year! That means that in the past two years, we have donated an incredible $102, 500 to deserving local charities. Congratulations to all our winning charities, and a huge thank you to all of our wonderful caring women. And now, on to year three!
January marked the second meeting of our third year of operations. On January 9, 2017 we awarded the Guelph chapter of Start2Finish our quarterly donation. Funds will be directed to creation of a Running and Reading Club program at Westwood Public School.

100 Women Who Care Guelph is a group of women in Guelph who care deeply about our community and are passionate about contributing to its health and vitality. Each quarter, we meet for one hour and make a $100 donation to a local charity voted on by the members.
1 hour + $100 x 100 women = $10,000! x 4 = $40,000 per year invested in Guelph! Now there’s a winning formula! Just think of the difference it could make to our many deserving local charities. It couldn’t be more simple, more fun, or have a more powerful effect, and you can be a part of it.
100 Women Who Care Guelph is for you if:
- you want to contribute to worthy causes in your community but aren’t sure how to fit volunteering into your schedule
- you can commit to one hour every three months
- you want 100% of your money to go directly to a local charity
- you want your $100 donation to be part of a large amount that can create powerful change in your community
Our next meeting is to be held on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 7 pm (registration begins 6:30) at the Delta Guelph Hotel and Conference Centre, which has graciously offered to provide us with a location for our meetings. A huge thank you to the Delta for giving 100 Women Who Care Guelph a home away from home!
