100 Women Strong

Helen Keller had a vision when she said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

As a giving circle, we believe in her vision and are excited that you are interested in learning more about the mission of 100 Women Strong. We are a circle of passionate women dedicated to working together and empowering the lives of women and children in our Central Florida community.

100 Women Strong members each contribute $1,100 annually and collectively work together, using data, research and local experts, to invest in high-impact solutions that help address source problems. We are looking for passionate and thoughtful women like you, to help us make a lasting impact in Central Florida.

Join us on our journey to making a positive impact in our community, together, through collective giving and grant-making.
