At its second quarter meeting, 100+ Women Who Care Emerald Coast voted to support The Starfish Project of NWFL. Their donation of $8,200 will make an immediate, direct and positive impact on this local nonprofit dedicated to providing funding for expanded services, including occupational, behavior, physical, and speech therapies, as well as audiology-related services, adaptive equipment, and resources for local children.
With over 100 current members, 100+ Women Who Care Emerald Coast meets once quarterly for one hour and gives all donated monies to local nonprofits in Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties. The members come from all walks of life and varying financial backgrounds with a simple desire—to learn about and give back to local nonprofit organizations in our communities.
100+ Women Who Care Emerald Coast entered a partnership with the Richard Schulze Family Foundation in 2017. Their very generous offer is still going, matching 100+ Women Who Care’s donations with an additional 50 percent to the organization selected each quarter. Their second quarter match will bring the total donation to The Starfish Project of NWFL to $12,300.
In their fifth year of giving, 100+ Women Who Care have supported the Arts and Design Society, The Arc of the Emerald Coast, Animal Protection League, Navarre Blackhawk Memorial, Navarre Beach Science Station, Children’s Volunteer Health Network’s Just for Grins Mobile Dental Clinic, Thursday Respite Program, Refuge for Women Emerald Coast, Opportunity Place, Air Force Enlisted Village, Santa Rosa Kid’s House, The Weekend Food Program of Navarre, Youth Village Inc., The Miracle League of Santa Rosa County, Food for Vets, and Healing Paws for Warriors.
The first 100 Women Who Care group was formed in November 2006 in Jackson, Michigan. From this first meeting, an international movement began. There are now more than 550 chapters of 100 Women Who Care, 100 Men Who Care, 100 People Who Care, and 100 Kids Who Care making a huge impact on communities throughout the world.
