What being a member means

Our goal is to support the wonderful non-profit and charitable organizations that are in the Airdrie and surrounding area. There are so many groups that are working to make our community a better, healthier, stronger place to live that don’t get all the funding they need to achieve their operating goals.

We don’t stop at 100 Women – we want as many members as we can get. The more women involved, the bigger the impact we can have on our community. Join us and experience that magical feeling of knowing that you directly impacted lives for the better four times a year! We ask that all new members commit to a year of meetings, but you are welcome to stay as long as you want – giving back is addicting.

Together We Will:

  • Bring together 100 (or more) women in Airdrie & Area who care about local community causes and who are committed to community service.
  • Meet for an hour. (or less!)
  • Jointly select a local charity or non-profit organization (nominated 2 weeks ahead of time).
  • Each member writes a $100** cheque(Payable to 100 Women Who Care Airdrie), cash or EMT (100womenwhocareairdrie@gmail.com Password: 100wwca) and watch how the group’s commitment turns into a $10,000+ donation.
  • Do that four times a year and witness how $40,000 can improve the lives of our neighbours when placed in the hands of deserving grass-roots agencies working to serve the local community.
    **You can contribute the $100 yourself, or with another person/ group of people. However, you will only be registered as one member, and therefore only have one vote.
