100 Women Philadelphia is a group of civic-minded women, a "cool sisterhood," that meets four times a year to pool our resources to help local non-profits and worthy causes in Philadelphia. Each member commits to donating $100 four times a year, for a total of $400. Watch the video below to get a better sense of what we do and how we do it.
This is a fairly simple way of making a positive, collective difference for Philly.
So far we have donated over $82,000 to local organizations.
Here's how it works:
Each member brings a local nonprofit, charity, or worthy cause, that she has vetted to be legitimate and in need, to which she would like the group to donate. Three of the causes are randomly chosen and each of those submitting members give a short (2-3 minutes) presentation about her organization. The group then votes to determine the recipient of that quarter's donation. Majority rules. No national charities will be considered as the purpose is to act locally to help out Philadelphians. If there is an emergency or an immediate need at the time of the meeting, it can be presented as one of the choices. If your nonprofit is one of the three chosen, but not ultimately picked, you can nominate that same organization in future meetings. Our meetings are at 7pm in Center City.
Our upcoming meetings are scheduled for:
Monday, May 8, 2017
Thursday, August 24, 2017
Wednesday, November 15, 2017
Thursday, February 15, 2018
