100+ Women Who Care Coastside is a women’s collective giving group. At four quarterly meetings each year, members contribute $100 toward a collective gift.
The recipient organization is decided by the members’ vote at each of these meetings. There are currently hundreds of chapters of 100+ Women Who Care groups operating around the country making a difference in hundreds of communities. 100+WWC Coastside is focused on philanthropic support for registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations on the Coastside, from Montara to Pescadero.
In order to receive the collective gift, organizations must:
Be based on and serve the Coastside, between Montara and Pescadero
Be registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization
Be nominated by a current member of 100+WWCC
Finalists must give a 10-minute presentation about their work to 100+WWCC membership
All non-profit organizations that have been nominated by a member prior to each quarterly member meeting and will have their name put into a pool. The steering committee will select 3 organizations from the pool at random to be listed as an award contender for the next membership meeting.
At each meeting, these 3 local nonprofits present for 10 minutes, answer questions, and provide the membership the opportunity to learn about the work they are doing in our community. At the end of the meeting, membership votes on which organization will receive the collective gift. Once the votes are tallied, the members’ donations will be distributed to the selected charitable organizations via Grapevine, our partner platform.
Members can nominate non-profits here.
