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.

As members of 100 Women Strong, we each contribute $1,100 annually and collectively work together, through research and analysis to help solve a source problem that will make a lasting difference. With that, we are looking for passionate and thoughtful women like you, to help us make a lasting impact on our community. Contact us, we would welcome the opportunity to share the stories from the years and learn more about you.

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