100 Women Who Care Jasper County
100 Women Who Care of Jasper County, a program of Jasper County Community Foundation, is a group of philanthropic women dedicated to making a positive impact on Jasper County. Members commit to donating $400* annually. The first $100 supports the Jasper County Community Foundation Endowment Fund, a fund of Jasper County Community Foundation that will be used to serve future community needs for years to come. The remaining $300 is used to support the three nonprofits selected by the members throughout the year ($100 at each meeting).
*Members age 40 and under are eligible for a reduced cost membership ($50 membership dues; $50 each meeting for a total contribution of $200 annually).
Update for 2017: Members may make a one-time payment of $400 (or $200) to 100 Women Who Care Jasper County. We will put $100 into the Jasper County Community Foundation Endowment and issue checks to the selected organizations on your behalf!
