Who We Are
We are 100+ women
Who gather 4 times per year
For 1 hour
Each bringing $100 when we meet
Receiving presentations from 3 local non-profit organizations
And presenting $10,000+ to the charity that receives most votes.
But it is about so much more than just the math!
100+ women of the Annapolis Valley area of Nova Scotia, raising $40,000+ a year for local charities in four hours over the course of a year. As simple as that. And, as powerful as that!
Bring together 100 (or more) women in Annapolis Valley who care about local community causes and who are committed to community service.
Meet for an hour.
Jointly select a local charity or not-for-profit organization.
Each write a $100 cheque to the selected organization and watch how the group’s commitment turns into a $10,000+ donation.
Do that four times a year and witness how $40,000 can improve the lives of our neighbours when placed in the hands of deserving grass-roots agencies working to serve the local community.
Our members consist of individuals and teams (of up to 4 women) who live in or near the Annapolis Valley area of Nova Scotia. Our membership includes professional women, retirees, at-home mothers, and youngsters – women of all ages and walks of life.
We hope to involve women whose history of donating to local non-profit organizations is infrequent, unfocused, non-existent, OR who may be able to dig a little deeper in giving. We also hope to attract young women who are perhaps just beginning their career, and impress upon them the importance of regular, meaningful giving to our community.
If you regularly donate to a local non-profit organization – DON’T STOP! Those organizations count on your help and it is not our intention to redirect that support.
