100 Women Who Care Effingham County

100 Women Who Care Effingham County

Our Mission

100+ Women Who Care of Effingham County, a program of Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation, is a group of philanthropic women dedicated to making a positive impact on Effingham County. Members commit to donating $400 annually. The first $100 supports the 100+ Women Who Care of Effingham County Endowment with Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation that will be used to serve future 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 may make a one-time payment of $400 to 100+ Women Who Care Effingham County. We will put $100 into the endowment and issue checks to the selected organizations on your behalf! 

The larger the group grows, the greater the contribution and impact will be! For example, if we have 100 members, each quarter the group will award a $10,000 grant to a local nonprofit organization.
