How does it work?
We meet for one hour, four times a year, and each member brings a donation of €25.
The group will gathers four times a year for a one-hour meeting, and each member brings their donation of €25 maximum and €5 minimum that goes to the charity that the group selects. This combined donation of €2,500+ or less will makes a real impact, without time-consuming fundraising events and planning. Our mission and our hope is to provide for those in greatest need in Ireland.
- You are asked on your registration form to nominate a national African Caribbean lead charity and one week prior to each meeting every members nomination is put into a hat.
- Three maximum or two minimum names are drawn from the hat. (This will be base on available fund)
- The charities that are pulled from the hat are then invited to send a representative to the meeting.
- Each of the charities makes a 5-minute presentation about their cause at the meeting to all assembled registered members.
- All members vote on which cause to support immediately after the presentations.
- Votes are counted right there and then and the charity with the most votes is announced at the meeting.
- All donations are collected at the meeting and the total donation is announced and given immediately to the group chosen by paying into their chosen account OR in cash if its a smaller group. We only accept cash!!!.
The top vote-getting charity then receives all the money, made out to them on the spot!
On each of four nights during the year, the 100 Women Who Gives a Damn and Care gives a maximum €2,500 or less of minimum €500+ to a local charity or non-profit right here in the community. It’s fast, simple, and amazingly effective.
This giving circle has no bank account, we are not a registered company, we have no overhead or admin expense to cover, we have a small volunteer organizing 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 Gives a Damn and Care is what makes it differ.
1 hour, €25 maximum, 4 times a year- Massive Impact! €2,500 total

This is the difference you and I can make in an hour, every 3 months in a year to our own communities.
