Our Goal!

100 Women Who Care About South Dundas (really 100 plus!) is a group of women in South Dundas who care deeply about our community and are passionate about contributing to its health and vitality. Each year, we meet for one hour and make a $100 donation to a local charity voted on by the members.

1 hour + $100 x 100 women = $10,000 per year invested in making  South Dundas an even better place in which to live!

Now there’s a winning formula! Just think of the difference it could make to our many deserving local charities. It couldn’t be more simple, more fun, or have a more powerful effect, and you can be a part of it.

100 Women Who Care About South Dundas is for you if:

  • you want to contribute to worthy causes in your community but aren’t sure how to fit volunteering into your schedule
  • you can commit to one hour every year
  • you want 100% of your money to go directly to a local charity
  • you want your $100 donation to be part of a large amount that can create powerful change in your community

How it works

  • Each member commits to donating $100 to the charity or organization that wins the most vote.  There may be second and third prize winners if we have a surplus of generosity.
  • The Playhouse has generously offered to host the evening once again this year.  
  • Last year's recipients will have several minutes to report on the success of their project.
  • Each contending charity will have several minutes to present their case to the voters.
  • There will be one vote.  
  • Each member will be given a ballot with the names of all nominated charities. 
  • Every member will write a cheque for $100 to the organization receiving the most votes, even if that is not her personal first choice.
  • Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the organization.
  • Members who are unable to attend the meeting are expected to give her cheque to another member to deliver on her behalf.  
  • Organizations under consideration must serve South Dundas and provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing members.
  • The selected organization must agree not to use member information for further solicitation purposes, or give it out to any third parties except for tax purposes.
  • Each annual meeting will open with a short update on how the funds donated at the previous meeting were used by the successful organization.

Let's dream big for next year!
