100+ Women Who Care MKE Metro West
100+ Women Who Care of Milwaukee Metro West strives to strengthen our communities by providing funds to local charities committed to improving the lives of people in communities west of Milwaukee.
Our mission is to bring together, for one hour every four months, at least 100 women. Each member contributes $100, personally or through a team, to a local charity chosen by members in that one hour that will make a difference in our communities.
Come join us to make a difference while you are having fun! You not only will be improving the lives of others but will be enriching your own life.
We members of 100 Women Who Care--MKE Metro West are excited to continue our mission of Making a Difference in our local communities by holding our next meeting on May 4. Because we have continuing concern about COVID even with having so many of us vaccinated, a decision was made to hold a Drive Up/Walk Up meeting so we can all be socially distant but can continue to make a difference in our communities..
Members will have a choice of gathering socially distant in their cars or by parking and walking up to give their vote or giving members the ability to send in their votes via email.
Steps to Participate in May 4 Meeting
1. Nominate a Local Charity
First, as usual, we ask that our members send in their nominations through our website by clicking on the button at the top of this page labeled "Nominate Charity". You then will be able to fill in the necessary information which will be sent automatically to our local leaders. Nominations are due by April 20 at 10:00 pm.
2. Selecting Three Charities
Three charities will be selected by a drawing and these will be posted on our website, on Facebook, and sent to our members via email by April 27.
Members will be able to vote with two different options.
Option 1-- Join us at the DRIVE UP/ WALK UP and place your vote at our collection table on May 4 between 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm. If you wish to view the actual counting of the submitted ballots at 6:30pm, you are welcome to park and view the counting in a socially-distant manner.
The Drive Up/Walk Up will be held at the former Ray's Auto Service at 13230 Watertown Plank Road, Elm Grove (across from O'Donoghue's) between 4:30 and 6:30 pm.
Option 2--Email your selection of one of the three drawn charities to Jane Condon at before 6:30 pm on May 4.
Members will be able to donate with three different options.
We are offering a convenient way to donate by bringing your signed check for $100.00 when coming to vote. We encourage members and teams to take advantage of this option. Once the ballots are counted and the winning nonprofit has the majority vote, we will complete the check by writing in the name of the nonprofit chosen. You will be notified by email of the selected charity.
If you are able to park and be socially distant while we count the deposited ballots (and emailed choices) at 6:30 pm, you can make your check for $100 out to the selected charity right after the counting as we have traditionally done in our in-person meetings.
You can mail your own check or your team checks to Karen Loeb at 18600 Yorkshire Lane, Brookfield, WI 53005. If the nonprofit offers on-line giving, this will also be available.
Please complete your donations within two weeks of the meeting.
5. Announcement of Chosen Charity
The votes will be counted and the chosen charity will be announced by email, on Facebook, and on our website later in the evening after the vote. Depending on the charity chose, members may be able to send in their $100 online at the charity's website. If members give donations via checks, checks can be sent directly to Karen Loeb at the address given in the email.

The Mission of 100 WWC-MMW is to bring together, for one hour every four months, at least 100 women who each contribute $100 to a local charity, chosen in that one hour, that will make a significant difference in our communities. In 2019 we gave three charities $29,200--Kathy's House, Association for the Rights of Citizens with handicaps, and The Women's Center of Waukesha. In 2020, despite the pandemic, we gave $33,920 to local charities to help our neighbors.
The total we have contributed since our founding four years ago is over $146,000--contributions that have helped citizens in our communities live better lives.

At the September meeting of 100WWC-MMW, at our virtual meeting, we learned how our funds raised in the last six months have been used. Angela Meyers of the Library Memory Project updated us on how the $10,905 they received because of 100 Women Who Care--MKE Metro West will be used when library programs can once again be open for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Jane Condon presented letters detailing how our donations to the three charities we supported in June—Food Pantry of Waukesha, Tosa Cares, and Hebron House—were used to help those in communities west of Milwaukee affected by the pandemic.
We are excited to report that the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation notified 100WWC-MMW of their matching grant of $1,717.50 as a contribution to our Big Give Drive.
These funds will support our neighbors in need during these extraordinary times.
