Welcome to 100+ Women Who Care Des Moines!

Our mission is to help our community by finding 100 or more women to each contribute $50-100 four times a year to give $40,000+ annually to local charities.

We are a chapter of the 100 Who Care Alliance. The grassroots nature of the Alliance allows our Des Moines chapter to operate independently in order to best meet a current need in our community. We like to keep it simple: we have no bank account, no operating budget, and no skin in the game. Our chapter gives a platform to local women to present on behalf and donate to area charities in a pressure-free environment. 100% of contributions stay in the community.

New in 2018

  • In order to be inclusive to all individuals of all life stages, 100+ Women is introducing a $50 quarterly gift in addition to the standard $100 quarterly donation commitment. Donations will continue to remain undisclosed to members and organizers.
  • We’ve refreshed our look! Plus, stay up to date on announcements and photos by liking our Facebook page.
  • Our original chapter founders- Sue Kenny, Dotty Thurston, and Liz Kennedy- have passed the torch to new organizers- Katie TurnerDeb MilliganLeslie A. Sufficool-Malcom, and Katie Brown. They will continue on as 100+ Women members and lifelong Greater Des Moines philanthropists. We are all extremely grateful for Sue, Dotty, and Liz’s tireless efforts since founding our wonderful group in April 2010.
