100 Women Who Care Maui
Part of a global non-profit alliance of 100 Who Care groups, we create maximum impact in a short amount of time.
We identify immediate problems in our community and put large resources into action. Our meetings last one hour and we aim to raise $10,000 at each event.
100% of donations go to Maui County causes. Anyone in need is eligible to be nominated by one of our members.
I’m Chelsea Hill, the founder of 100+ Women Who Care Maui. In late 2014, I learned of a child sexual abuse case and was seeking a way to quickly raise funds without the usual complications. I heard about the 100 Who Care Alliance from my sister in Canada and decided on the spur to host an event. I invited my friends and in one hour, we raised $2800. Mandy Prouty, a fellow parent at my daughter’s school, had recently moved to Maui from Chicago and was looking for a way to give back to the community. The moment she heard about what I was trying to accomplish, she jumped on board and helped me organize the second meeting. We’ve been able to host events every three months ever since.
We’ve received wonderful publicity in the local press, and our membership is growing quickly. I am astonished and thrilled by the enthusiasm of our Maui women. Over and over again, women tell us how the 100+ Women Who Care Maui alliance is simple, brilliant, inspiring, and effective.
