100+ Women Who Care Valley of the Sun is an Arizona giving circle of women who love to GIVE. The Valley of the Sun chapter and its giving circles are run by an Executive Committee of big-hearted volunteers along with the assistance of some very generous sponsors. 100% of their members’ donations go directly to the local charities selected at their quarterly giving circles. The goal of the group is to support the wonderful work that their local charities do in funds, exposure and awareness in a minimal amount of time.
A Big Impact
100+ women x $100 = $10,000+ for a local charity in 1 hour – 4 times per year (quarterly). They currently have three (3) groups meeting throughout the Phoenix metro area – Ahwatukee, Scottsdale and East Valley. Their members come from all over the Phoenix metro area to participate. Their goal as a chapter is to donate $500,000 in five (5) years to local nonprofit organizations. To date, they have donated over $440,000.
