How It Works

We give away $10,000 in 1 hour.

  • We meet for one hour, four times a year, and each member (and guest) brings a check for $100 (or more…).
  • Any member can nominate local charities, non-profits, or worthy causes, whose names are put into a hat.
  • Three names are drawn at random during each meeting.
  • The 100+ Women Who Care Maui member makes a 5-minute presentation about her nominated cause.
  • All members who are present, vote with a secret ballot, for one of the three causes.
  • All members and guests write their checks out to the cause that receives the most votes. Right there on the spot!

It’s fast, simple, and amazingly effective. Plus, all the money stays right here in Maui County.

Download the Nomination Form (PDF) and bring it to the next meeting if you have a cause or charity you want us to support. We will also have nomination forms at the meeting. Registration starts at 5:15 pm. Please arrive by 5:45 pm to get checked in and seated. Nominations close promptly at 6 pm – no exceptions! Thank you for your understanding.
