BECOME A MEMBER

It's easy to join us! We welcome guests and new members! Check out the meeting—you can meet other members, learn about nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island and see how the voting process works. If you'd like to join, you can fill out a commitment form on the spot, participate in the voting process and start making an impact.

100% of your donation benefits the nonprofits selected. There are no administrative fees; there are no member dues. All money received is directed toward the selected nonprofit. We are an all-volunteer organization.

MEMBERSHIP LEVELS

The 100 Who Care model is based on the $100 per meeting membership level.  While this remains our most common membership, in the spirit of making philanthropy accessible to all, we have added several options for individual and team memberships.  

Joining is a commitment of one year; and a commitment to honor your donation level at each of the quarterly meetings. We ask that you do your best to attend four, one hour quarterly meetings; if you are unable to attend a meeting, you will be notified of the non profit recipient and directed as to where to send your donation. There are no fees or monetary commitments outside of your donation.

INDIVIDUAL MEMBER LEVELS

• CHAMPION: $100+ per meeting/$400+ annually

• LEADER: $100 per meeting/$400 annually

• SUSTAINER: $50 per meeting/$200 annually

TEAM MEMBER LEVELS

Form your own team and select a team leader. Each team receives a single vote per quarter. The team leader is responsible for gathering consensus and communicating the team vote as well as collecting and reporting the team donation. 

• TEAM OF 3: $35 per member, per meeting/$140+ annually, per member

• TEAM OF 2: $25 per member, per meeting/$100 annually, per member

How It Works

1. NOMINATE

Before each meeting, members may nominate a Rhode Island based, nonprofit organization serving the Rhode Island population. 

2. MEET 

At each quarterly meeting, three of the nominated organizations are chosen at random and members who have nominated the selected organizations present a brief description of the nonprofit.

 

3. VOTE

Members who are present at the meeting vote, the votes are counted and the recipient is announced. Each member donates to the chosen nonprofit at her level of giving. Your donation has just been transformed into an impactful contribution!

 

4. IMPACT

Watch how the combined contributions of 100 Women Who Care RI can improve the lives of our neighbors. Over 40 local nonprofits have benefited from our donations. Collective giving is powerful!
