BANDON – 100 Strong Bandon members chose the Southern Coos Health Foundation as its November charity in support of the 20th Annual Women’s Health Day.

The event is free to participants so the 100 Strong Bandon funding will go to help with the cost of venue rental and catering, facilitators, speakers and swag bags.

About 100 Strong Bandon

100 Strong Bandon is a group of 100 women committed to financial support of charitable organizations serving Bandon area residents. The group gets together four times a year for a one-hour meeting, to learn about local charities, and each donate $50 (or more) to the charity selected by the group, for a total impactful gift of $5,000+ each quarter.

100 Strong Bandon is open to women 18 years and older living in the Bandon area. The group is coordinated by the Bandon Chamber of Commerce.

The group was inspired by 100 Women Who Care, a group founded in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, as a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. Her group of 100 women, at their first one-hour meeting, each wrote a check for $100 directly to the charity, raising $10,000 to buy 300 new baby cribs for an organization in their city. Since then, they have grown to over 200 members and Women Who Care chapters are forming all over North America. These groups collectively have donated more than a million dollars to locally based organizations.

All of the leaders and members of our 100 Strong Bandon giving circle are volunteers. The group does not keep any of the money that is collected. One hundred percent of all donations go directly to the selected charity.

100 Strong Bandon meets quarterly on the third Wednesday of February, May, August & November, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2023. The location will be announced closer to that date.
