Women Who Care History
Giving. Caring. Supporting. Educating. Uplifting
The first "Women Who Care" group was created in Jackson, Michigan in 2006 by Karen Dunigan, who envisioned a brilliant yet simple way to raise money for local charities, nonprofit and worthy causes. Understanding that many professional women had the desire and resources to directly help local charities, Dunigan invited group members to meet only once a quarter for one hour and to donate $100 per meeting. Each meeting would raise $10,000—an amount significant to most non-profit organizations. Dunigan’s vision and inspiration spread and numerous groups of 100+ Women Who Care have formed throughout the country.
The Golden Heart Women Who Care chapter was started in late 2014 by a group of local women who know that Fairbanksans are always looking to make a difference in the Golden Heart community. The needs are great for local nonprofits and, by focusing the power of multiplication and the impact of direct giving, the 100+ Golden Heart Women Who Care can make a powerful and immediate impact.
Members of the 100+ Golden Heart Women Who Care simply commit to donating $400 per year ($100 at each quarterly meeting) to a qualified local nonprofit. Those donations are gathered and donated to the chosen nonprofit.
