100+ Women of Westerville may be over, but you can still help the organizations below.
"100 Women of Westerville was the reason we were able to buy our first 100 copies of Clint Smith's book How the Word Was Passed [for our WeRISE WeREAD project]. The books are for the community and students. The donation from 100+ WoW was exactly what we needed to jump start this history project and we are grateful for that."
"[Through 100+ Women of Westerville's] $3,850 donation, we increased our Westerville High School Senior Women Scholarship endowment at Columbus Foundation."
"Because of 100 Women's donation, we were able to start a new partnership with a senior facility, while continuing our work at two other Westerville facilities. Twice a month, thanks to your donation, we now serve the Memory Unit at Parkside in Westerville. We have become an integral part of their circle of care, helping these seniors find their joy in the twilight of their life. Good Medicine now serves 250 residents in Westerville alone -- a 25% increase."

"When we won the 100+ Women monies early in 2020 it was a Godsend because we had to cancel all of our events, including building walls. But, with the help of your donations, we were able to build a home in August 2021. If you would like to help physically build a home with us next year, please volunteer!"
"The money that was donated [by 100+ Women] paid for utilities for an entire year for our emergency safe home for women who have been trafficked."
"100+ Women of Westerville offered tremendous support and community leadership by contributing to our capital campaign to build a new shelter in Delaware. That shelter is full today and throughout the holiday season, offered safety and solace to victims of domestic abuse and their children. Our 2021 Holiday Program served a total of 151 individuals, bringing the comfort and joy of Christmas to our shelter residents. Supporters like you empower our ability to respond in times of crisis and we are grateful!"
Star House has volunteer, donation and mentorship opportunities for people in the community who wish to help their cause.
"After receiving 100+ WoW support in April 2018, the Westerville Library Foundation used those dollars to manifest a Story Walk at the new Johnston-McVay Park, launch a new childhood literacy program at the library (1,000 Books Before Kindergarten) and buoy our final year of independently funding Dolly Parton's Imagination Library for the children of Westerville. That program has since been expanded by the Governor's Office and now serves all children under five in the state of Ohio."

"You were one of our first large donors and helped us create the very first personal care pantries for Westerville high schools."
"The 411 Foundation was the first organization to receive funds from 100+ Women and those funds were put back in the community through our blessing bags and survival kits."
