about us

"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples."

~Mother Teresa

our mission


  • Invite a diverse group of women to join together, pooling their passion, compassion and charitable support, to significantly impact causes in our community in which they believe.



  • Simple, but powerful: recruit 100+ women to donate a minimum of $200 (or more) per year and use these funds to award grants that create a significant impact in the lives of those in need in Northeast Ohio.


Who we are

  • A growing community of women that is committed to improving the lives of people in need in Northeast Ohio. Our members care passionately about our greater community and work to increase awareness of local needs.



  • Combine our members’ financial resources to make large-scale grants a reality two times per year. 


#FIRSTgiving and #secondgiving

  • All members will be invited to two giving circle events per year. 100% of dollars gifted by members will be provided to organizations throughout Northeast Ohio. No less than 75% of dollars gifted by members during a particular giving cycle will be granted to a selected organization by way of majority vote. Any remaining or carry-over funds will be devoted to the long term growth of the 100 Women Strong OHIO fund or granted in future cycles as voted on by the membership. Members may serve on any of the committees or subcommittees.
