Livingston County: ‘100 Women Who Care’ Benefits Local Charities

A new organization is helping local charities by embracing the power of women who want to make a difference.

100 Women Who Care About Livingston County launched in May of 2012.

The group is comprised of women from all walks of life who share one thing in common: the desire to help people in need on a local level.

The group still has a few select openings to achieve its 100-member level. Individuals who join now will be recognized in all of the organization’s future charter materials as Founding Members.

Meetings take place each quarter. The group listens to presentations made by three nominated nonprofit organizations. The members vote on which charity will receive that quarter’s donations. Previous winners are excluded from the nomination process. 

One of the lead organizers, Candye Hinton, said she is excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for this group. “We are thrilled by the enthusiasm and generosity of the women in our community,” Hinton said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to join together as individuals and make a significant difference as a collective group.”

Members donate $100 each quarter. A $400 yearly commitment is required for membership. The organization’s goal is to make a donation of $10,000+ to a chosen charity every quarter.

The group already has made two generous donations to the Mission House in Fowlerville and the Youth Connection of Howell.
