Nominee Profiles

Collective impact grants are generated by the donations made by 100+ Women Northumberland members. 100% of these gifts are donated directly to a charity of choice as selected by the members. Based on membership, a grant can be $5,000 or greater!

The following charities will be up for vote at our next meeting. For more information about the charities, please click on the charity’s name to visit their website.

We are requesting a grant to purchase a Sara Lift.  Also known as a “Sit to Stand Lift”, they are used to assist mobility patients when they are unable to transition from a sitting position to a standing position on their own. They help mobility patients transfer from standing to sitting safely.  The Hospital currently has 2 of these lifts (one in the Emergency Department and one in Restorative Care) and they’ve proven to be incredibly helpful to both the patient and their caregivers. It is our hope to have a Sara Lift in the Dialysis Unit as many of our patients have difficulty transferring into and out of their treatment chairs.

Book Clubs for Inmates helps inmates develop pro-social skills, such as respectful listening and speaking.  During the pandemic, BCFI had to cease operation but we are now allowed to resume our work and hopeful to resume in-person book clubs this fall. Currently, we are sending books and reflection questions into some prisons, and certain book clubs are operating virtually.  If BCFI was awarded the October grant, the funds would be used to re-launch the Warkworth Institution book club program.  100 Women Who Care Northumberland would also become a patron of the Warkworth book club and receive recognition accordingly.

We are hoping to be selected so that we may replace all the broken, worn outdoor equipment.  Just one bike can cost between $250 and $350 dollars and we have 4 groups of children, approximately 50 children per day.  We could also purchase special needs equipment so that all children would be included.
