DECEMBER MEETING

In lieu of a December 2023 meeting for Animal Charity Night, we decided to raise additional money to support a previous winner,  Our House of Hope Rescue.  We raised $7240 in donations which included being doubled by an anonymous donor. 

OCTOBER MEETING

At the October 16, 2023 meeting, we heard from three charities listed below. Educate. Radiate. Elevate. was the top vote getter.  The total   donations
 - $7,760 - were split among the three charities  Thank you! 
Hi everyone,

 

I'm happy to report great results from the October 16, 2023, our 17th meeting.  

Educate Radiate Elevate was the selected charity, receiving $3930 from 38 people.  ERE provides professional tutoring to underserved kids.

One in a Hundred which runs a camp for autistic and other special needs kids received $2,005 from 25 members.

 

Humble Design which provides furniture and furnishings to formerly homeless people collected $1,725 from 22 members. 

 

The total raised in this meeting was $7,660 and 3 great charities benefited from your generosity.  

 

We had seven members give to two of the charities, and 18 people gave to all three charities presented.  Giving to more than one charity is strictly optional, but that makes us unique from other collective giving groups which only accept donations to the selected charity.

 

Since the inception of Women Giving Back, we have raised $163,945 for small charities helping those in need.  Together, we are making a big difference with our collective giving.   

Thank you, as always.

Sandy
