that’s all it takes to help a charity close to your heart!
We are a non-profit organization with a goal of bringing women together to leverage small, individual donations into larger, collective grants to invest in Northumberland-based charities.
HOW IT WORKS
Each member commits to donating $50, four times a year (annual charitable donation of $200*).
*We appreciate that we’re living in difficult times. We want to make 100+ Women Who Care Northumberland accessible for everyone. A sliding scale membership option for donations to our community grant program is now available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Donations must be made in advance of or at the start of each meeting.
Any member who has signed a Membership Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may submit a Charity nomination form to nominate an organization for consideration at a meeting.
Three registered charitable organizations will be drawn at the end of each meeting to be considered for the next vote. Members will then vote for one of these charities at the following meeting.
The nominating members will make a five-minute presentation about the organization to the group and a Q&A session will follow.
Each member who has signed a Membership Commitment Form and who is current with her donations may vote (by ballot) for one of the three organizations. Votes may be made by proxy by another member or via email.
The organization to receive the most ballots will receive a collective grant in the amount of the membership contributions at the time of the meeting, for example, 100 members will generate a grant of $5,000.
Members who did not vote for the selected organization agree to make their donation regardless.
Join 100+ Women Northumberland and make a difference in our community! Once you’ve submitted the online form you will receive a welcome email that outlines a listing of upcoming meetings and information about how to make your donation and how to nominate a charity.
100+ Women Northumberland members who have submitted a Membership Commitment Form and who are current with their donations may submit a Charity Nomination Form to nominate an organization for consideration.
Alternatively, a registered charity that serves Northumberland County can self-nominate themselves. Please note that if your organization has already been nominated by a member we will combine the applications.
To nominate a charity please fill out our online form, or download our Charity Nomination Form to fill out in Word and submit to email@example.com.
All questions must be answered in order for the nomination to qualify.

Covid visitor protocols and our expanding garden setting for residents, family and guests necessitate the purchase of durable, sanitizable, sustainable, functional, attractive outdoor seating:
Four garden benches, six armchairs, one picnic table, three small tables from Taylors Recycled Plastic Products in Bailieboro – totals $7,925 (pre-tax).
Habitat for Humanity Northumberland is requesting a grant to host a Women Build Week this spring with the 100 Women with Heart Northumberland. We will be working on finishing two home renovations in Cobourg and the money would go towards materials. This will be a great opportunity to help with demolition, bathroom and kitchen renovation, painting, flooring and finishes
