100+ Women Who Care Columbus, Mississippi is a group of women who gather for a one-hour meeting, learn about local charities and organizations and each gifts $100 to the organization the group selects. This combined donation makes a real impact without time-consuming fundraising events and planning. We hope you will join us at our next meeting and see how rewarding it is… to members of the Giving Circle, as well as to the recipients of each Impact Award.
Our Mission Statement
WE ARE WOMEN FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE ACROSS LOWNDES COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI, WHO SHARE A DESIRE TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY BY COMING TOGETHER TO GIVE TOGETHER.
Three years ago, Beth and Jamie were visiting in central New York and found themselves having lunch with two nuns who run a free health clinic. The nuns were ecstatic recipients of a recent $10,000 Impact Award to help fund their clinic. Beth and Jamie were intrigued. Neither were aware of 100 Women Who Care. The simplicity seemed too good to be true. People coming together to give support to local community organizations could only lend itself to endless positive possibilities. Every so often the two would talk about 100 WWC. Three years passed. In December of 2018 they decided to stop just talking about it and said, “Let’s do it!” Close to 100 women showed up mid-April for the Kickoff to learn about 100 Women Who Care and join. Membership has continued to grow in number and enthusiasm.
