$20,000 donated to non-profits

Area non-profits received just under a combined $20,000 from 100+ Women Who Care of Door County as a thanks for their contributions to the community. At their April meeting, the organization awarded $10,000 to the Women's Fund of Door County and $4900 to both Big Brothers Big Sisters of Door County and Good Samaritan Society - Scandia Village. 

 

The process starts with 100+ WWC members nominating a non-profit organization they are passionate about. Three organizations are then pulled out of a hat, and then asked to have a representative present for 100+ WWC members. The members will then vote on awards. 100+ WWC board member, Paula Latta was pleased with April’s selection, saying they represent the interests of Door County well. 

 

 

Latta also appreciated the diversity, as each non-profit works with different age cohorts. The top prize winner, Women’s Fund of Door County, will be using their award to contribute to their Invest-Dream-Achieve grant. The grant allows them to support women attending Northwest Wisconsin Technical College with financial and academic coaching. 

 

Since the organization’s inception in Door County in 2018, they have raised $196,700 for local non-profits. They anticipate they will reach $200,000 at their July meeting. Latta says it’s been exciting and makes her feel like she can make a big impact in Door County.
