Pin It

The Cayman Islands chapter of 100+ Women Who Care is pleased to announce their new Board of Directors for 2019. Sondra Lovett has been named Chair and is joined by Natalie Toole (Marketing & PR), Jaslyne Bridges (Charity Liaison), Jennifer Williams (Volunteer Coordinator) and Laura Redman (Sponsorship).

100+ Women Who Care Cayman Islands was established in 2015 and has raised over CI$247,000 to date for 18 local charities. The group gathers four times a year, for a one-hour meeting, and each member donates $100 to the charity selected by a member vote at the event.

“Our mission and hope is to provide for those in greatest need in the Cayman Islands.” Mrs. Lovett said.

“It’s so heartwarming to hear each charity’s story and know what a difference we can collectively make to our community. Together we can all achieve more and the combined donation of $10,000+ from each event makes a real impact.”

The first meeting of 2019 will be held on Tuesday 19th March at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort. The charity with the most votes on the night will take home the collective donations of $100 from each attendee. The three presenting charities are not disclosed until the night of the event but thanks to Premier Event Sponsor, PwC Cayman Islands, the two charities that are not selected by the group vote this time around will still go away with $1,000 each.

About 100+ Women Who Care Cayman Islands

We are a group of women who lead busy lives and want to do some good in our local community. Together we can! The group gathers four times a year for a one-hour meeting, and each member writes a $100 cheque to a charity that the group selects. This combined donation of $10,000+ makes a real impact, without time-consuming fundraising events and planning. This giving circle has no bank account, we have no overhead or admin expense to cover, we have a small volunteer organising committee and rely on the registered members to support the group as a whole and offer help as needed to ensure meetings are run successfully. The simplicity and collaborative nature of the 100+ Women Who Care movement is what makes it so successful.

The History of the 100 Women Movement

Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan founded the first 100 Women Who Care Chapter in 2006. Her group of 100 women raised over $10,000 at its first meeting to purchase 300 new baby cribs for a local nonprofit agency. Since then, over 275 chapters (which include Men, People and Kids Who Care chapters) have formed across North America and beyond in a like-minded effort to make a positive difference on a local level.
