How It All Began

100 Women Who Care was started in November 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, as a simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities, nonprofits, and worthy causes.  At their first one hour meeting  her group of 100 women each wrote a $100 check directly to a charity.  In one hour the group raised $10,000 to buy 300 new baby cribs for an organization in their city.  Karen’s simple, powerful and impactful concept has inspired a worldwide grassroots effort of giving. Today there are more than 350 chapters making a huge impact in local communities around the world.

We come from all walks of life and different financial backgrounds.  Collectively, we have the ability to contribute to the growth of our community in ways we never before thought possible.

The 100 Women Who Care Greater Venice inaugural meeting is November 4, 2020, hosted by a group of women from Venice, Florida.  We are thrilled to join this movement to benefit local charities. Twice a year we come together for a one hour meeting to select one 501(c)(3) charity in the Greater Venice area to whom we will collectively donate $10,000.
