Giving Circles

The concept of a giving circle is as simple as it is powerful. A giving circle is formed when a group of individuals pool their dollars, decide collectively where to give their money and resources, and learn together about their community and philanthropy. Discover the power of giving together!

100+ Women Who Care

Inspired by the growing national enthusiasm for the giving circle model, and supported by the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, the 100+ Women Who Care is a local giving circle that aims to support local non-profits through collective giving.

Their strategy is simple: 100+ Women commit to attending four one-hour meetings per year at which they pledge to give $100 to the mutually-selected nonprofit organization. Each member also makes an annual contribution of $100 to the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County which goes into a 100+ Women Fund to help meet future community needs. For only $500 a year, members make a significant impact in this community.
